American Road Bridges

American Road Bridges

Kedmor recently submitted tender documentation for this pair of curved, post-tensioned bridges at Zeitim Interchange, Jerusalem.

This was our first project, where we implemented the new Sofistik parametric bridge modelling software in our BIM model.

We are delighted to announce the promotion of Robert Ferris to Director of UK Projects.

Robert moved from London to Israel with his family in 2017. He is a Chartered Structural Engineer with a wealth of experience working alongside leading Architects and Developers, on building projects within the UK.

We are keen to use his local knowledge to help our clients to design great buildings, both in the UK and in Israel.

IABSE Symposium & TU1406 COST Action Conferences

IABSE Symposium & TU1406 COST Action Conferences

We presented papers at two conferences in Guimaraes, Portugal last month.

The first, was the final conference of the TU1406 COST Action Group. This is a part of a special study programme, funded by the EU, with the objective of encouraging collaboration between academics and practical designers. Amir Kedar has acted as Moderator for Study Panel 6, which presented papers and case-studies of how the quality control of existing bridges is performed outside Europe.

The second was the IABSE Symposium 2019, where Micha Petri presented his paper on the design of the Loko Oweto Bridge in Nigeria and Amir presented his work with the Cost Action Group.

Congratulations to both!

We’re really excited about their new roles within the Practice.

Jordan Gateway Bridge

Today we visited our Jordan Gateway Bridge project. The incrementally launched bridge superstructure, is now in its final position and the site team is busy fixing the permanent bearings.

Pisgat Ze’ev Sports Complex

Final landscaping works underway on this 6,000sqm sports complex in Pisgat Ze’ev, Jerusalem. Kedmor provided structural design services for this steel and reinforced concrete framed building, in collaboration with V5 Architects.

Student Intake 2018-2019

Kedmor 2-03.jpg

Kedmor welcomes this year’s placement students Yossi Ashkenazi, Roee Meidan & Guy Tamir, all from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

Each will be involved with our projects, gaining valuable practical experience in the design office.

Guy & Roee will also receive guidance for their final university projects from Micha, one of our resident Ben-Gurion University Lecturers.

Please get in touch if you’d like to be part of next year’s student intake.

The Pavillion

In this voluntary project, Kedmor collaborated with Architecture students from the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design, to create a temporary pavilion for the entrance of the Architecture department. The project focused on the exploration of natural materials with algorithmic design procedures and digital fabrication.

The students elected to create a sustainable structure, using form-finding parametric modelling techniques. They used Grasshopper and Rhino to optimize the structure to maximise the shadow created on the ground. The structure, built by the students, was formed from natural timber and locally sourced from the Jerusalem Municipality.

Kedmor provided the engineering support for the project, using finite element analysis software and engineering know-how to stabilise the structure and resolve issues along the way, in cooperation with the students.

This project was supported by Casali Institute for Applied Chemistry, Negev Ecology and Nesher Cement industries.

Equality

Kedmor have decided to close their offices on Sunday 22nd July 2018, to go out and protest, in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community’s struggle for equal rights

Equality for everyone!

Nir Towers Ramps

The formwork of the feature car-park ramp has been removed, completing the structural works on this high-rise residential project in Petach Tikva.

Careful detailing of the slender support structure was required to enable this formed concrete ramp to be hung from high-level, whilst mitigating the impact of the structure on the landscape architecture.

Arlozorov Underground Station UAV

Arlozorov Underground Station UAV

Kedmor commissioned a UAV flyover of our Arlozorov underground station project, showing the temporary works struts in place, whilst the excavation of this ‘cut and cover’ structure progresses.

The white struts temporarily brace the external reinforced concrete diaphragm retaining walls, facilitating safe construction of the main station.

Kedmor's 17th Birthday!

Israel Railway Electrification

The Israel Railway electrification project was declared by the State of Israel as a national infrastructure project with a 12 billion NIS budget. The transition to electric locomotives will shorten the journey times, increase frequency of trains, significantly reduce noise pollution and eliminate air pollution along tracks and stations.

Kedmor have been appointed as the Israeli Structural Designer on this international project.

Loko-Oweto Bridges, Nigeria

Loko-Oweto Bridges, Nigeria

We recently visited our Loko-Oweto Bridge project construction site in Nigeria.

The eastern bridge is now complete. This was a huge relief for the site logistics team, as the construction of the western bridge can now be carried out from the eastern one, rather than having to continue working from barges on the river!

Kedmor were commissioned to provide structural engineering design and continuous site supervision services for this pair of bridges.
