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.

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.

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.

The Jordan Gateway bridge has been captured on film, showing the progress on site. We designed the bridge and launching system for this landmark project.
