Bridges & Structures
We have been developing inspiring and exciting bridges and structures for over 100 years.
We provide technical services in the areas of civil engineering and the construction of various infrastructure schemes.
Working with an integrated project team, our unique blend of skills coupled with local knowledge, allows us to successfully deliver a wide range of bridge and support structures.
Our company’s sizable fleet of plant and equipment coupled with our skilled labour force enables the efficient delivery of each and every project.
We utilised specialist equipment to install the prefabricated sections of Castle Bridge, Bristol
Innovative Y- Shape
Part of the Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone
ST PHILIPS BRIDGE
Bristol City Council
Construction of a four-metre wide cycle and pedestrian bridge over the River Avon.
A steel-box girder system of varying cross sections with a Y-shape arrangement.
Designed to accommodate the height difference between the two riverbanks, one branch is connected to an elevated concrete ramp, the other branch carries a pedestrian staircase down to a pedestrian footpath.
The Bridge forms part of the multi-million pound Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.
First new Bristol bridge for 50-years
Construction of a unique curved bridge, topped with timber decking, culptured cladding and feature lighting.
The 91 metre S-shaped bridge across Bristol’s floating harbour, linking Castle Park and Hawkins Lane.
The bridge’s piled foundations, concrete structure and 20-tonne steel sections were all placed via ‘jack-up’ barges and floating pontoons.
Castle Bridge is an integral part of the Finzels Reach development, linking the Floating Harbour to the City Centre.

Award winning bridge
Associated British Ports
Design and Build replacement 42-metre single-span rail bridge over the dry dock entrance to the River Usk.
The single span bridge is 5.2m wide, with composite steel and concrete main beams on piled foundations.
With associated earth retaining structures and piled abutments were all undertaken within a tidal estuary, the bridge carries a single railway line on a ballasted track.

|CELTIC MANOR BRIDGE
Celtic Manor Resort
A landmark structure forming part of the impressive Ryder Cup Championship course.
The bridge was designed as a ‘rod stayed’ bridge with a main span of 95-metres and two end spans of 15-metres and is 160-tonnes in weight.
The deck supports a 4.2m wide carriageway to accommodate both pedestrian and lightweight maintenance vehicles.
A six-metre environmental exclusion zone was maintained along each river bank.
WINNER: LABC Award for Large Commercial and Infrastructure Project.
Constructed in a flood zone
ICE Sustainability Award
Amey/Hereford County Council
This landmark structure over the River Wye in Hereford is the ﬁrst bridge to cross the river in 45 years and forms part of the Sustrans national cycle network, connecting Hereford City centre to the Rotherwas business area.
Its reinforced concrete retaining wall was anchored using micro piling techniques.
The double span cable stay structure is 100-metres long, and includes a three span ramp access at its City end.
WINNER: Institution of Chartered Engineers Regional Sustainability Award
Adjacent to Mainline Railway
Detailed Temporary Works Design
Harbour Way: Peripheral Distributor Road (PDR)
Costain/Neath Port Talbot Council
Construction of abutment walls to Bridge 3 which spans the Swansea-London Main Railway Line and is adjacent to an existing bridge which is the main entrance into the TATA steel works.
The walls are 110m long, 8m high and 1.5m wide. F4 Concrete Finish was specified for exposed elevation.
This was a labour only contract with Andrew Scott undertaking all temporary works design.
The PERI system minimised disruption to the main railway line by minimising the number of night-time possession needed to safely meet the project’s programme.
