Bridges

For over 180 years, Rendel has been involved in the design, engineering and construction of major bridge structures throughout the world. The firm has extensive experience of all forms of construction and type including continuous multi-span viaducts, long marine crossings, swing and lift bridges and floating bridges.

Recent projects have involved linear and non-linear dynamic and spectral response analysis to ensure performance under seismic, ship impact and aerodynamic effects. Experience also includes innovative cost-saving foundation schemes and safeguarding structures subject to geotechnical threats such as liquefaction and mining subsidence.

Services from Rendel encompass a total capability in all fields required to undertake major bridge assignments. Apart from comprehensive technical expertise, the firm also provides project procurement, construction management and site supervision functions.

Rendel is particularly experienced in developing efficient and cost-effective design and erection schemes for international contractors on D&B and D&C projects. We specialise in developing bespoke schemes aimed at achieving the most suitable solutions with regards to the contractor’s specific bridge erection equipment and resources.
