Footbridges platform extensions retaining walls and driver
hop-ups all designed and fabricated with either traditional
or steel foundations.
FLI’s design engineering capabilities align with platform extension schemes. At Castle Bar Park previously unknown buried services were encountered and FLI installers were able to continue piling for the front of the platform while our engineers were re-designing the back. Despite the platform requiring modification, the redesign was produced quickly and the foundations were still completed within a week.
Using screw piles instead of concrete for footbridge foundations, speeds up and simplifies the installation programme. There is no curing time and no problems with sloping sites or soft ground. Screw piles can be installed in minutes and a bridge landed on the following shift. No excavation means no spoil to move. The design offers flexibility to work around existing services and a smaller footprint when needed.
