We help owners and contractors develop lifting and erection sequences and design temporary structures required for bridge erection. Our team works closely with contractors to understand each project’s specific needs, equipment to be used, access and timelines required. Our designs are supported by stage-by-stage modeling to ensure that no member is overstressed as a result of the erecting process.
Our work includes design of lifting points/rigging on girders and trusses; temporary shoring and bracing for bridge erection and replacements of bridge girders, bearings and deck slabs; evaluation of crane loads on existing soil or decks; and design of trestles to support the equipment and workers required to build the bridge.
