Bridges and Civil Engineering Structures
- The company has excellent capability and creativity to find the most economic solution, yet technically sound and safe structure.
- Due to these qualities we became the most preferred consulting engineering company among the contractors competing on Design-Build bids projects.
- The company is specialized in the spliced girders method. This method is the way to maximize span/depth ratio for bridges composed of pre-cast girders. Utilization of this method, combined with the company developed system for optimization of post-tensioned tendon profiles, enables reducing 20%-40% of the structures cost, compared to other alternative design methods.
- The company designs integral abutments bridges up to 80 meters long, including bridges with large diameter concrete piles. The integral abutments bridges avoid the need for bearings and expansion joints, reducing construction cost and dramatically minimizing the maintenance cost. The integral abutments bridges improve the riding quality of vehicles. Accurate analysis of the creep, shrinkage, temperature difference effects and the foundation soil interaction is accomplished, resulting in a very well performing bridge.
