Bridge Inspection & Assessment

01 03

Inspections extend bridge lifespans

We know how critical maintaining existing bridge infrastructure is to your community. Our bridge inspection team assesses bridge safety to increase reliability and service life, helping to reduce maintenance, reconstruction, and replacement costs. We use the best access methods–including techniques like SPRAT-certified rope access, which allows us to provide clients with more detailed inspections, increasing accuracy and structure safety while minimizing disruptions.

By ensuring quality of our bridges and roadway structures, I help keep the traveling public safe.

Accessing problem areas

Diligent inspection programs and strategic maintenance plans are part of our approach to help extend a bridge’s lifespan. We understand every aspect of bridge management and apply this knowledge to help our clients assess the safety of their in-service bridges. Using the best available methods, we gain hands-on access to critical locations that are either difficult to see or are in areas where traffic control or standard access equipment just isn’t feasible. The result? Efficient, cost-effective access and inspections.

A deep dive into structural health

Inspections help assess the health of our structures to maintain a long service life. Knowing the conditions of your assets below water provides a clear picture of their current state. Through projects like assessing damaged piers in an emergency, flying a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) through a raw water intake pipeline, or performing routine bridge inspections for departments of transportation, Stantec’s underwater inspection teams have been helping keep waterfront facilities safe for over 30 years.
