At a time of rapid urbanization combined with instantaneous technological changes, our physical and digital realms are converging, and infrastructure is taking on an even bigger role. Building these connections and bridging the capability gap in the market is critical.
We attack and solve difficult problems through creative thinking and teamwork and are constantly striving to find new means and methods to perform tasks more efficiently. On the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement project, we are utilizing twin machines known as a self-launching Movable Scaffolding System (MSS) to support the formwork and allows for a rapid and safe construction of the roadway. An economical solution, benefits of MSS include more efficient and safer road deck construction, minimal ground impact, and reduction in the number of joints and stress points along the structure. Mainly used in Europe, this is the first time this innovative approach has been used to construct a bridge in California.
We are continuously integrating emerging technologies, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and cloud-based project management tools that enhance design and construction efficiency, improve trade contractor coordination, reduce field changes, precisely monitor schedule progress, optimize long-term asset performance, and facilitate the usage of new technologies, such as virtual reality.
