CON/SPAN® designers perform engineering studies and prepare preliminary plans to allow for accurate cost estimates for projects, and their technical support can include automated CADD plan preparation. Software allows a direct hydraulic comparison between CON/SPAN® and other structures.
Engineers design the precast units based on the amount of soil cover and the live load for each specific project as well as check the design for handling/erection loads using a non-linear finite element computer program originally developed for the Federal Highway Administration that has been modified for CON/SPAN® application.
CON/SPAN® provides full shop drawing preparation with Professional Engineering stamp in all states. Additional engineering services can include foundation design and drawings as well as hydraulic modeling and scour analysis.
Our staff of professional engineers has experience with over 8,000 CON/SPAN® structures and is available to provide engineering support from the planning phase of a project through the construction phase.
