A team effort
EIC staff involved on the project included:
Colin Edmonds, EIC’s Technical Director for structures, led the construction engineering of the bridge erection manual.
Matt Hennessy carried out the staged construction analysis and capacity assessment of the bridge. Matt was also the package lead for service impact assessment and splice adjustment structures.
Project Manager of EIC’s engagement with Bridge 91, Phoebe Tay, managed the deliverables of all construction staging and temporary works packages. She was also responsible for the verification of the bridge erection manual.
Jeff Roper, who is responsible for the temporary support and laydown support packages has been working closely with the project team and supplier to determine a cost-efficient solution for temporary towers, working together structural requirements of the towers with access to facilitate construction works.
John Potts who is EIC’s Heavy Lift Specialist provided lifting concepts and rigging arrangements for the girder and pylon installation working closely with the project team to manage the site constraints. John reduced cost impacts by removing several crane pads and the need for self-propelled modular transporters.
Jawad Zeerak leading the Geotechnical portion of EIC’s engagement has assessed the impact of the temporary works and construction engineering on the existing ground and provided several crane pad designs for the construction of the bridge.
3D Modelling of the bridge was undertaken by Leighton Asia’s 1DCS group. This assisted planning with lift studies and clash detections.
