Roads & Bridges
FS has completed over 100 major bridges, over rivers, canals, lagoons, on the sea between islands, along highways and in the heart of cities and towns, coping with the most diverse geological and topographical conditions, acting either as "contractor" or as "design and construct contractor". Bridge superstructures built by FS comprise the use of postensioned AASHTO concrete girder, prestressed concrete girders, concrete box girders, steel box girders, jumbo steel girders, steel trusses. With its expertise in girder launching, it can launch girders even in the most difficult situations. Bridge types built by FS cover an ample spectrum, traditional type highway bridge, suspension type bridges, railway bridge, mass transit steel bridges, composite type bridges, among others.
Bridge Engineering and Construction is one of FS’ strong point. As a specialist involved in the design and construction of bridges, FS has considerable experience and expertise in conceptual, preliminary, and final detailed design of bridge structures, development of construction methods, complete design and detailing of formworks and erection systems, on-site construction of selected elements of the structure such as structural steel and reinforced concrete elements, pre-cast and pre-stressed components, special foundations, and everything until the completion of the entire bridge superstructure.
The applications of this knowledge by FS assist project owners, developers, and consultants resulting to enhanced quality, improved safety, simplified method, reduced construction time, minimized cost, and increased structure value.
