Maximising the capacity of existing structures
Our experts have published many technical papers on assessment of historic structures, and contributed to significant industry reports and international standards.
- Concrete and post-tensioned concrete bridges - We’ve carried out 95 post-tensioned concrete bridge special investigations since 1971.
- Metal bridges - We pioneered the realistic assessment of structures and assessed 100s of historic metal bridges including steel and cast and wrought iron and many half through girder bridges
- Masonry bridges - Since 1998 we have developed arch standards for Network Rail and provided specialist investigations of masonry structures
- Technology for bridge assessment - In 1990 we started using failure mode effect analysis as an alternative to traditional assessment methods, leading to engineering simulation and 3D computational design
