During their employment in various companies our colleagues were working as project engineers or consultants/technical supporters/software supporters on this project.
Sheik Zayed Bridge is a spectacular and iconic crossing and the main gateway crossing to Abu Dhabi Island. The primary aim was to provide a monumental landmark that will leave a legacy for the city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). To achieve such a legacy, the award-winning architect Zaha Hadid was commissioned to produce the structural shape that symbolizes the desert dune hills of the UAE. The highly irregular nature and varying shape of the structure posed many engineering challenges. The structure twists and element sizes vary in three dimensions, with few surfaces being truly horizontal or vertical.
Bridge type: Complex three-span concrete arch bridge with suspended deck and steel arches with total length of 842 m and longest span of 140 m.
Involvement of our Employees: Software support/development and assistance in modelling, structural analysis and design.
