Roadways & Bridges
Roads and bridges have been the lifelines of human communities for thousands of years. Today, they facilitate a fantastic array of communication and transport, knitting together our societies and making everyday life possible.
We are committed to keeping our roadways and bridges safe and beautiful, while minimizing the less desirable effects of their social and environmental impact.
Perhaps one of the least glamorous aspects of civil engineering is road maintenance—but it is just as important as the foundation and structure of a building. We bring as much attention and care to our clients’ roads and bridges as we do to realizing the places where we live and work, because the risks inherent in each are too great to ignore.
Whatever the project, our clients can count on us for solutions that are aligned with sustainable development. We have and will continue to apply our expertise to the building and maintenance of roadways and bridges, ensuring that we target solutions that have long-term sustainability. This means we consider the carbon cost not only of construction and maintenance, but use—particularly traffic flows. The faster and the safer we can get our people to home, or work, or play, the more we can do to minimize the impact of transportation.
The bridges of our world today need better engineering now more than ever. As an aging cohort of 20th century bridges faces increasing needs for maintenance and improvements, we are promising our clients an innovative approach with a focus on value engineering, sustainability, and brilliant aesthetics.
The state of the world’s bridges provides an opportunity to revamp our infrastructure and rethink our approach to sustainability in transportation. The goal should be universal: to extend the life of these valuable and critical pieces of infrastructure through expert surveys and inspection of structural integrity, gleaning from the data insights to ensure the next generation of bridges we build will be more durable, more sustainable, than the previous.
Every road has a purpose.
Some are built for foot-traffic, some for bicycles, some for beauty, and some for extreme vehicles that perform some of the world’s toughest work.
Our civil engineers take pride in ensuring that every road type we work on will withstand the test of time, tires, and even feet.
Local and national governments the world over understand the value of their road networks. They carry the lifeblood of the economy, but often their extent is so great, and their management so consuming, that maintaining an optimal state of operation goes unrealized.
We are able to work with our clients to provide end-to-end road lifecycle management. From initial planning, to design, construction and maintenance, we can act as expert advisors to ensure that road networks remain safe, reliable pieces of infrastructure that keep our communities connected and thriving.
As maintenance partners, our goal in every project is add value for our clients by creating agile frameworks to prioritize maintenance needs against roadway risk management, ensuring that resources are allocated in an efficient manner to maximize the impact of every investment.
