Translation of core documents, preparation of the schedule program, definition of main task and activities, project summary, duration, progress and milestones. Construction monitoring activities, planning, testing and commissioning, QA management, health and safety and environmental management.
Messina Bridge GC – Joint venture preparing a tender for the general contractor. This £3 billion project includes what will be, by some margin, the world’s longest span suspension bridge. Overview of the preliminary design, review of the drawings, reports and all the archive material available. Liaison with the Italian contractor to prepare the tender documentation.
Metsovitikos Bridge – Design check of 240 m span post-tensioned balanced cantilever bridge in Greece. The bridge is located in a seismically active region with 120 m high piers. Analysis of the loading and global model of the structure. Envelope of live loading according to DIN, thermal effect on the deck and piers, differential settlements and rotations. Modelling of 400 tendons including grouting and loses of prestress. Construction stages analysis with the effect of creep and shrinkage along the life of the bridge. Stress and capacity checks.
Cross London Rail Links (Crossrail), UK –Structural Constraints Report Romford Station, review of the archive material available, drawings, and/or reports and the source of the information. Site survey report, details of the size, layout and construction of the existing structures.
Stonecutter Bridge – Checking the geometry of the longest cable stayed bridge in the world, including the back span approaching the structure. Computer model of the bridge and analysis of the superstructure. Dead load, superimposed dead load and live load analysis. Model of the prestressed backspan, geometry and tendons stressing. Generation of the influence lines all over lanes and envelope of the results. Methodology of construction sequences, analysis of creep and shrinkage, linear and non-linear analysis of the structure. Checks undertaken of cable stayed system components.
Railtrack Project Delivery Southern 01/02 Contract – Inspection, analysis and assessment of railway structures.
East London Line Northern Extension– On behalf of the SRA, asset management planning of the East London Line railway, which passes through tunnel beneath East London. The commission comprised an Asset Desk Study and Asset Survey of existing structures that will be affected by the East London Line development. Undertook condition surveys and qualitative assessments of those bridges and viaducts (mostly Victorian) which will span over or carry the proposed East London Line Northern Extension (Phase1). Inspection and assessment of masonry arch bridges.
