Bridges 2015 is on Wednesday 25 March and will feature a series of high-quality presentations from specialists in the industry, top-level engineers and bridge owners.
Delegates will be able to see our range of services for the repair and maintenance of bridges and our comprehensive bridge bearing package, which includes the inspection, design, supply, refurbishment and replacement of bearings.
Our bridge work case studies show examples of our expertise including the work we carried out on Rochester Old Bridge, in Kent.
We were called in to examine the original roller and fixed bearings on the bowstring arch Victorian bridge. This involved the inspection of the mechanical movement of the bearings, which had been in place since the bridge was constructed in 1914.
The investigation process involved inspection of areas of stress, corrosion and defective paint coating, together with measurements of bearing offsets; all of which was undertaken in extremely restricted conditions with poor visibility, requiring the use of special equipment.
Delegates at Bridges 2015 will see our post-tensioning expertise in bridges, a technique which gives longer, more slender spans with fewer supports and minimises the problems of cracking to improve structural durability and longevity.
Examples of our repair and strengthening services including sprayed concrete, cathodic protection along with specialist grouting and concrete repair will also be featured on the stand.
Bridges 2015 is at The Point; Lancashire County Cricket Club’s £12 million conference and event venue.
In the event’s exhibition area delegates will get to see the latest technology and services specific to the bridge engineering and asset management sector.
The event will also provide attendees with the opportunity to network with peers and find new business contacts.
