Bridges and civil structures

Bridges and civil structures provide safe and economic access for people and communities across obstacles such as rivers, dams, roads, railways.

Johan Kotze
Expertise leader: Bridges and civil structures

We believe that the needs of these of the communities impacted by this infrastructure should therefore be at the centre of every project we design.

These needs are being reshaped by rapid, ongoing urbanisation, expanding emerging markets, resource constraints, and changing technologies. In support of reducing the environmental impact of these structures, our designs consider construction methods that can use largely recycled materials or repurpose existing assets. Understanding and applying the latest design and construction technologies available is critical to reshaping the way we implement major infrastructure projects.

Today’s designs must meet the needs of tomorrow’s users. We know that many of the bridges that are constructed today will need to be widened, lengthened, strengthened or even relocated as traffic and transportation needs grow and as new vehicles evolve in response to increasing population demands and emerging technologies. We apply new insights throughout the planning, design, construction, and maintenance phases of a project to optimise the lifetime value of assets.

Zutari is a leading provider of bridge and civil structures engineering services. We are experienced in all forms of bridge design, including long-span bridges, rail and road bridges, cyclists and pedestrian bridges, as well as specialist civil structures for transport projects such as culverts, retaining walls, cut and cover tunnels and sign gantries.

Understanding and applying the latest design and construction technologies available is critical to reshaping the way we implement major infrastructure projects.
We pride ourselves on our ability to give asset managers greater insight into the performance of their infrastructure.

We also have significant experience in incorporating digital engineering tools into:

  • Bridge asset management, including bridge management systems, inspections, and design for rehabilitation and strengthening
  • Design of temporary works for the construction of bridges and related structures
  • Programme advisory based on practical insights and our technical expertise

Furthermore, we pride ourselves on our ability to give asset managers greater insight into the performance of their infrastructure. We offer a complete bridge design service for all materials, bridge forms, and functions. We will develop design documentation from a single 3D model and use it for quantity take-off, clash detection, cost estimation, and construction programming. We will also use creative technology and visualisation modelling techniques to provide you with a virtual representation of the product that we will deliver.
