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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With a diverse portfolio ranging from small to iconic, we bring a unique understanding of the full lifecycle to any structure. McLaren offers a wide range of services from new construction design to sustainability and resiliency.
With our engineers, planners and scientists who focus on the complex environment where land meets water -- we provide resilient solutions for shoreline protection, flood risk management, ecosystem restoration, and dredging support.
Building construction services include specialty structural engineering (SSE), connection design and Tekla modeling, demo/erection sequencing, support of excavation (SOE), cranes and rigging, structural lifting, shoring and jacking.
Whether land, water or air, our Geomatics Division offers the latest high-tech survey and mapping capabilities spanning traditional land surveys to aerial drone surveys and high-tech 3D scanning and mapping.
McLaren's entertainment division brings places alive with specialized structural and mechanical design and engineering. We have helped create some of the best events, concerts, displays, staging and productions worldwide.
Gerard Bartucci has over 40 years of experience with structural engineering projects for highway, railroad, utility and pedestrian bridges. His technical expertise includes seismic fatigue analysis, retrofit, in-depth inspection, historic structure evaluation and rehabilitation. He has worked on construction staging for some of the most heavily trafficked roads and rail lines in the U.S.
