For all bridges, whether iconic or not, SYSTRA Bridge Group emphasizes the importance of producing bridges tailor-designed for their site that are constructible and economical without sacrificing elegance.
This design philosophy leads our teams to deliver:
- Cost-saving concepts with well-conceived construction methods, selecting suitable materials based on cost-effectiveness,
- Competitive alternative solutions developed through a Value Engineering process to allow Contractors to be more competitive than with the existing design (from both quantity and construction method point of view),
- Innovative designs: The U-shaped viaduct, for example, is a SYSTRA invention developed to reduce costs and construction delays for elevated mass rapid transit projects. We have planned and designed nearly 1,000km of U-shaped viaducts in 17 countries, half of which are in service or under construction. This concept has been adopted for the level crossing removals in Melbourne.
