Project Date: December 2016
Client: Highways / Albem Joint Venture (HAJV)
Project Type: Detailed Design
Location: Three Springs and Carnamah, Mid West WA

Project Description:

Design & Analysis was engaged by constructor HAJV (Highway Construction / Albem Operations JV) to provide an alternative bridge design for a Main Roads WA bridge over water in Three Springs Western Australia.

Project Scope:
  • Detailed design development of an alternative bridge design to facilitate accelerated project completion
  • Provision of revised drawings
  • Supplier liaison to optimize materials use
  • Development of Safety in Design (SiD) and design report
  • Geometry and construction methodology
  • Construction support

The alternative bridge design developed by Design & Analysis facilitated an accelerated project program by eliminating pile capping beams which enabled the HAJV construction team to construct the abutment and pier supports for the bridge during a particularly rainy season.
