Bridge design is not just structural performance but also about how a bridge looks and the social benefits that a well-designed bridge can deliver in the context of the surrounding environment. Highways England have recently published a document entitled “Principles of Good Road Design” in an initiative to improve the design process which we fully support. There is an emphasis on innovation using long lasting quality materials which we can deliver with an FRP composite bridge.
At Lifespan we work with leading bridge Architects to deliver a design concept based on the brief from the Client. The deck can be moulded to a freeform 3D design with a unique parapet using a variety of materials. LED lighting can be incorporated in the deck or parapet to enhance the architectural features at night.
If you require a bridge with a unique design concept, consider using FRP composites which have the versatility and flexibility to deliver a sustainable. Cost effective solution.
