Bridge Deck Replacements

One of the biggest challenges in replacing bridge decks is finding a better solution than the original concept that is perfectly aligned with the existing construction as well. Finding a complete and sustainable solution therefore requires a technical, innovative approach. Over the years we have replaced various bridges and bridge decks in the Netherlands, Norway, England and America. These projects varied from designing and building complete structures to replacing parts of bridge decks. Whether it is a complete bridge or a (part of a) bridge deck, all Bayards Build solutions are designed, built and installed according to the highest quality standards and the latest international safety regulations. We do this entirely in accordance with the wishes and requirements of our clients, which makes us the preferred partner for advanced, sustainable bridge solutions.
