ROADS & HIGHWAYS
Roads connect people, cities and countries. They are the arteries of the world and the basis for global
ROADS & HIGHWAYS
They are essential to ensure mobility of people and goods, and new road infrastructure is needed on an ongoing basis. More importantly, existing roads need refurbishment or upgrading.
By using technology, such as Intelligent Transport System (ITS), it is possible to postpone major new investments in a safe and responsible way. Extraordinary quality and selection of first-grade construction materials are a priority throughout the project execution. Whether working on motorways, country or urban roads, new roads or rehabilitation projects, asphalt or concrete structures, we provide the full range of road construction solutions and guarantees appropriate surfaces suitable for traffic loads, with optimum grip, driving comfort and an above-average service life.
We offer a wide range of services within the area of road and motorway engineering – ranging from strategic assessments and analyses to detailed construction and as-built documents.
We also have extensive experience in all the different phases and do everything from concept development to operations and asset management. Modern society depends on a well-functioning traffic and transportation system. To improve the quality of roads and motorways, our transportation and traffic engineers offer expert advice on the planning and design of them, as well as advanced support and asset management.
We use our skills in construction and construction management, transportation planning, design program management, and asset support services to help our clients develop, expand, and rehabilitate highways and roads around the world. We understand the financial constraints facing governments and agencies today and specialize in project delivery methods such as public-private partnerships and alliance contracting for major programs that manage costs and help projects get done quickly and efficiently.
Solutions for city streets and squares
Our road and motorway team also plan and designs city streets and squares. They focus on traffic safety and the creation of a good environment for different types of traffic, including pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. One very important aspect of street and square projects – and one that typically represents a bit of a challenge – is the selection of visually appealing and durable pavement materials. Over the years, we have come up with many excellent pavement solutions, often utilizing natural stones to ensure both longevity and sustainability.
Motorways and main roads
Our partners have worked on road projects all over the world. Our experience ranges from motorway solutions in heavily populated areas to gravel roads in developing countries. In addition to regular detailed design services for motorways and main roads, we also offer specialized services – for instance, to widen existing motorway sections through open land or highly complex town sections. We know how to navigate the challenges posed by limited space, noise, and existing structures. We also have the in-house capability to undertake geometric and pavement design for all types of road networks (including local roads, collector roads, arterials and expressways), and we use state-of-the-art design software.
Our partners have combined its expertise in the areas of road and bridge design asset management with advanced testing methods and IT to offer complete solutions for asset management. We are the leading provider of consulting services and equipment for efficient pavement management. We use our expertise and proven analytical methods to optimize road asset management and bring the greatest benefits to road authorities, contractors, and end users.
A portfolio of projects
Our partners reconstructed some of the world’s largest interchanges, built lanes on some of the busiest highways in the world and helped reconfigure local roads to make surface streets easier to traverse. We have worked in large teams of designers and construction contractors to deliver complex surface transportation projects.
Planning for all project phases
A well-planned project is key in developing highways and roads that meet travelers’ needs. Our program and construction management expertise help deliver projects that meet our clients’ cost, schedule and quality objectives. We are well versed in all areas of the planning process
