Bridges and Critical Infrastructure

Home / Expertise / Bridges and Critical Infrastructure

The Madsen Giersing team is experienced in the design and delivery of bridges to meet the infrastructure requirements of government and private enterprise. We also facilitate the protection of existing assets to keep people and materials moving.

We provide technical assistance during the construction phase of bridges, and ongoing support throughout the lifetime of the completed structure. This includes any temporary works required during construction, follow-on maintenance planning and damage investigation & assessment.

Our team carries out thorough inspections on existing infrastructure and coordinates all the investigative work governments and private enterprise interests require to plan for the future.

We have successfully delivered a broad range of infrastructure projects to both national and international contractors in Australia, Papua New Guinea, South East Asia and the South Pacific region.

All of our projects are strictly quality controlled in accordance with ISO 9001 to ensure the best project outcomes with respect to safety, risk, quality and budget.
