Many ongoing projects keep our team busy, so we are now looking for new experts to join the team.
We are interested in experienced bridge designers, but you are more than welcomed to apply if you hold a background in structural engineering and strong motivation in bridge design.
Our design team provides solutions for the entire life cycle of the bridge projects. We offer design and expert services for bridges and structures, from pre-engineering to construction design and inspections to demolition. However, our expertise is best weighed in demanding bridge sites. Our skills as designers of challenging structures have also been recognized internationally – we have been involved in over 20 bridge projects around the world.
Our experts have designed, among other things, the world's tallest railway bridge, the Chenab Bridge and Thu Thiem 2 and the Hue Bridge to Vietnam. Our special expertise is the design of tensioned bridges and slanted rope and union beam bridges. You can see our latest work samples when crossing Atlantinsilta, Sudentassu or Tarvon silta. Kruunuvuorensilta and Kirjalansalmen silta are examples of major projects which we are currently working on.
