Bridges & Structures
SYSTRA provides a comprehensive bridge inspection, assessment and design service for new and existing bridges, including road, rail and pedestrian bridges. Our experienced teams can also provide feasibility advice at planning stage to assess the viability of proposed schemes.
In addition to highway structures, we have extensive experience in designing ancillary structures such as; car parks, skateparks, drainage structures, retaining walls and foundations for major traffic signs, CCTV masts and variable message signs.
Bridge inspection and assessment is a major SYSTRA activity and our scope in this field includes: inspection of bridges to both Principal Inspection and Inspection for Assessment levels, supervision of specialist investigation contractors, assessment of bridges to current DMRB standards to determine load capacity, recommending remedial measures to improve the capacity of sub-standard bridges and preparation of design and specification of remedial strengthening measures.
SYSTRA also provides structural services for building design and is an Approved Body under the Structural Engineers Registration (SER) Scheme.
