We provide structural engineering practice based on our large experience, skills and passion for structural engineering. We are sensitive to the requirements of owners and contractors. It is our belief that simple, elegant, efficient and economic bridges are based on a clear understanding of function, constructability, context and time. Our designs combine all demands for safety, efficiency, aesthetics, durability, economy and constructability as basis for lasting quality.

Bridges have a great impact on our environments as we interact with them on a daily basis. We believe that good bridges should be sensitive and understand the context. Aesthetically attractive bridges are not necessarily expensive structures. Cost increase only happens if we understand aesthetics as an ornament to what is built, and not as something that is intrinsic to the bridge itself. The general belief that aesthetics increases the cost of a bridge is wrong. Many of the most beautiful bridges have been built as Design-Build projects and they are both efficient and economic.
