INFRASTRUCTURE ENGINEERING

Bridge, Highway + Rail Engineering

McLaren’s infrastructure engineering division offers full-service solutions for a variety of bridge, highway, and rail projects. Supporting both public and private clients, we provide design, analysis, and inspection services for infrastructure projects of all sizes shapes, and scopes.

From long span river crossings to highway overpasses, railway bridges to secondary road structures, bridge inspection programs to retaining walls, appurtenant works and everything in between, McLaren can provide technical excellence and management expertise on any infrastructure project.

Although our firm is best known for iconic infrastructure engineering around the nation, we are also the experts behind the engineering of local streets, pedestrian bridges, appurtenant structures and culverts.

Services

Design + Design-Build (Alternative Project Delivery)

Our team is routinely called upon to complete design builds and comprehensive services for all phases including project scoping, preliminary design, final design, construction support services, and construction inspection services. We are known throughout the industry for our innovative public infrastructure design and development of bridges, roadways, and railroads using state–of-the-art 3D modeling.

  • Design-Build Projects –Highway, Rail, Rail-Trails
  • Bridge Design – Roadway, Rail, Pedestrian, Utility
  • Overhead Sign Structure Design
  • Roadway Design
  • Railway Design
  • Grading & Drainage Design
  • Utility Design
  • WZTC/MPT Design
  • Utility Structure Design – Underground Vaults, Manholes, Tide Gate Structures, Pipelines
  • Sheeting & Shoring Design
  • Park Structure Design – Rail-Trails, Walls, Gates, Fences

Inspections + Condition Assessments

McLaren’s infrastructure inspection teams are available to assess conditions, file state and federal inspection reports, and most importantly, use our system of computerized management tools to compile assembled inspection data and focus on the prioritization of deficient elements.

Specialized Bridge Inspection

Our bridge inspection staff are NHI, NBIS, NICET, NACE, and SPRAT certified and employ access techniques ranging from hard-hat diving to abseiling – meaning no aspect of a bridge inspection will go unreached. In short, our engineers are trained, experienced, and prepared to provide services through all aspects of any project.

Rehabilitation + Maintenance

Having worked with private and public agencies around the country, McLaren has supported the rehabilitation and maintenance of hundreds of bridges, railway and roadway projects. Our infrastructure engineers provide detailed examination to determine conditions, safety, and future needs. We efficiently identify those elements in greatest need of rehabilitation. In this way, a group of bridges can be repaired or upgraded in a fashion that optimizes the use of available funds.

  • Structural Evaluation
  • Repair & Rehabilitation Design
  • Seismic & Fatigue Evaluation & Retrofit Design
  • Mitigation Reports
  • Bridge Replacements

Culverts + Dam Structures

Our team of engineers, project managers and water specialists are experienced in culvert and dam engineering. By planning and researching the construction and by using materials that are less likely to erode, our team can increase the likelihood of appurtenant work success and minimize environmental damage. If engineered properly, blockages or altered waterflow can be mitigated and stream habitats can become resilient to changes in climate and land use.
