Our R&D department is continuously involved in innovative research projects with universities, research centers and other private and public stakeholders. Some of our engineers are active members of international technical and scientific committees, and have been participating in the development of industry standards and codes.
Research and Development
Pedelta's expertise comprises financial and technical analysis, concept designs, bridge aesthetics, construction and lifecycle costs, renderings and public involvement.
Feasibility Studies/Conceptual Design
Our clients benefit from Pedelta's broad experience and technical expertise to develop successful projects based on studies of alternatives, sound concepts, constructability analyses, innovations, design, excellence, and accurate cost estimate. Pedelta has an outstanding showcase of DB and PPP projects.
It encompasses the development of cost-effective, safe, elegant and sensitive to the context designs of all type of bridges and structures, materials and sizes. Special emphasis is put on sustainability and constructability.
Seismic assessment and design, staging analysis (4D), wind analysis, rolling stock analysis of high speed rail bridges, rail-structure interaction, soil-structure interaction, non-linear analysis, and reliability analysis.
Complex Structural Analysis and Design
Pedelta provides independent peer and technical reviews of the concept and detailed designs to ensure client and project needs have been met, to mitigate projects risk and to minimize construction cost.
Independent Checking and Peer Review
Pedelta's experts work together with contractors and owners to research other design alternatives to reduce construction time, cost, or site and environmental impact.
Pedelta provides owners and construction management concessionaries with engineering inspection services that add value to the project through construction feasibility reviews, on-site inspections, safety and health plans, and all kinds of work supervision tasks to meet project milestones in scope, time and cost.
Assistance During Construction
Pedelta provides construction administration and inspection services, bringing unique expertise and capabilities to each project, including an excellent track record in planning, design, construction administration, and full-time, on-site inspection services.
Our design expertise is combined with our experience in bridge construction. Our engineers have participated in the construction of most of our designs, which are at the forefront of accelerated construction techniques, complex erection staging, segmental construction, steel fabrication, construction details, and temporary works designs to match contractor means and methods.
Erection and Construction Engineering
Pedelta has performed over 5,000 bridge inspections and condition assessments. The firm has implemented maintenance strategies and a software assisted bridge management system for both transportation owners and concessionaries. In this way, Pedelta supports bridge owners to ensure both safety and performance, and to extend their lifespan.
Inspection and Maintenance
We perform structural assessments by using either standard or sophisticated reliability analyses, load capacity evaluations and overweight vehicle assessment.
Load Rating and Assessment
Our engineers contribute to an extended lifespan of existing bridges and structures (including historic constructions) through the use of forefront rehabilitation, repairing and strengthening techniques. Our experience includes seismic retrofitting, capacity increase and widening of existing bridges.
Repair and Rehabilitation
We provide tailored solutions to upgrade all kinds of existing structures to meet seismic performance objectives.
Pedelta provides structural engineering investigation to determine the cause of structural failures, damage assessment, and repair and rehabilitation designs of bridges, buildings and complex structures.
Pedelta develops complex demolition plans for all types of bridges. We can simulate and optimize deconstruction in the demolition design phase. Our consistent approach ensures that our clients are efficiently meeting their duties and objectives while also mitigating the risks.
