What We Do
Spannovation provides a comprehensive range of specialized bridge and seismic engineering services. We cater to owners, general contractors, erectors, steel suppliers and prime consultants. We have experience in design, third party check / review and construction engineering roles on design-bid-build and alternative delivery projects.
"Local Expertise, Global Perspective" is the guiding principle of our practice as we continue to gain diverse project experience across North America, India, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. We seek to leverage the diverse geographical perspectives and our understanding of local practice requirements to deliver innovative, practical engineering solutions. This experience enables us to create ideas that not only cater to local norms but also incorporate pertinent elements from global best practices.
Planning and Design Services
We specialize in the planning, conceptualization, and detailed design of new and replacement bridges. Our expertise lies in steel and concrete girder, segmental, extradosed, and cable-supported structural systems. We take a holistic approach to planning design, considering multi-disciplinary influences, site constraints, constructability, stakeholder and owner objectives, sustainability, and cost when developing and evaluating solutions.
Seismic Retrofit & Rehabilitation Design
We provide condition assessment, load evaluation, analysis of renewal options, as well as the design of retrofit and rehabilitation strategies. Collaborating with owners and stakeholders, we develop the most appropriate renewal strategies to extend the functional life of structures in line with their budget plans. Our aim is to provide solutions that minimize life-cycle costs and ensure safety, functional improvements, and compliance with current seismic standards.
We collaborate closely with contractors to develop custom erection plans tailored to their preferred methods. Our work includes detailed construction staging analyses and designing relevant temporary works. Additionally, we offer services such as accelerated bridge construction techniques, design modifications, geometry control, and technical support during construction. Our specialties encompass heavy lifting, jacking, incremental launching, and lateral slides, as well as progressive and balanced cantilevering.
As a part of this service, we provide certification for Independent Design Reviews, Category III checking, and EGBC IRSD. Additionally, we offer professional EOR authentication for supplier drawings and calculations, ensuring every aspect of the project aligns with the highest professional and regulatory standards. We adopt a collaborative approach to independently confirm that a design meets project specifications and complies with relevant local regulatory standards.
