Structures

Structures are a passion and a strength, and we relish projects where others may shy away. Whether it’s repair and strengthening, a replacement or a new bridge, we approach each one with clever ideas and meticulous attention to detail. We integrate with the customer’s team and engage with our specialist suppliers to develop the most cost-effective solutions which keep traffic and trains moving and keep everyone safe

Network Rail, National Highways, Connect Plus and TfL are customers who value our approach. Standardised designs combined with offsite fabrication and off-line pre-assembly reduce on-site construction time, improve quality, and minimise maintenance regimes. This reduces impacts on passengers and allows safe continued operation of our roads and rail infrastructure.

New/Replacement Bridges

Whether replacing an existing bridge, providing a new structure, completing a structural repair or undertaking structural maintenance, we take the same collaborative approach to minimise disruption and keep the public moving. With over 200 bridge schemes completed, every solution meets specific customer needs and is designed to manage risk and maintain safety. Designs, specifications and methodology integrate modern methods of construction along with information gained from wider consultation with operators and maintainers.

Working for developers and local councils, we have used our extensive rail experience to promote innovative solutions using modular off-site fabrication and launching techniques, efficiently gaining technical approvals through the Network Rail “outside parties” process.

Retaining Structures

From planned retaining structures on road and rail to reactive rail embankment stabilisation projects, we work with you to determine the most efficient solutions. Our people are experienced and highly technical and engage openly with our piling specialists and the customer’s operational teams from the outset. The outcome is efficient designs which focus on keeping communities safe and connected on the infrastructure network.

For emergency rail embankment works on the Wessex route we have an agreed rapid response protocol with Network Rail which operates 24/7. The agreed processes ensure the operational railway is up and running safely in the shortest possible time.
