A technical lecture looking at how construction methods impacts design of bridges.

Bridges are important assets which are vital in connecting people and communities together. Some of our older bridges have either reached the end of their service life or unsuitable to deal with modern 21st century transportation needs. In the UK, most construction projects involving bridges are either new builds or reconstructions.
 
The challenge for us as engineers is to develop safe, smart and innovative solutions to meet our client’s needs while also working within site specific constraints.
 
This talk looks at a variety of bespoke bridge installation methods using examples from some of Cass Hayward’s most prominent and award-winning projects.
 
It will look at different construction methodologies and examines the impact these have on the design.
 
This talk is suitable for anyone interested in structural engineering and bridges, whether you are a student, graduate, chartered or retired engineer.

Speaker

Dr Gareth Davies, Cass Hayward LLP 

Gareth is a Partner at Cass Hayward and joined the firm as a graduate over 20 years ago from Cardiff University. He has worked on the design of dozens of bridge projects during this period.
