A project completed this summer was Gas Works Access Bridge for BAM Nuttall Ltd.
They awarded Shay Murtagh Precast with the manufacture of the concrete bridge beams for this extension to a bridge in Chelsea Harbour, London.
What is a Concrete encased steel beam?
When the structural steel sections fully or partially encased in concrete, concrete-encased steel composite beams, frequently employed in building construction. Instead of using conventional steel or reinforced concrete members, this form of beam offers greater strength and stiffness.
Bridge Beam Specifications
- 2 No. 9.227m Cill Beams
- 1 no parapet beam – 10.22m
- 4 no internal bridge beams consisting of concrete encased steel bridge beams
- (3 no beams consisting 3 steel beams encased in concrete per beam, 1 no with 4 steel beams encased in concrete – all 10.22m)
Bridge Beam Manufacturing
These pre-stressed concrete beams manufactured by dedicated personnel, ensuring quality.
Our testing procedures ensure that each project becomes manufactured to the requested specification.
We worked with Paul and the installation team to deliver the beams to schedule in July 2012. We thank all the BAM Nuttall team and look forward to the next project.
