The revolutionary InQuik bridging system is a pre-engineered system for constructing small to medium single and multi-span steel reinforced concrete bridges.
The modules are prefabricated offsite and delivered to site ready for construction by placing the modules and pouring the concrete.
This results in considerable reduction in cost and time over traditional bridge construction methods. It also offers significant benefits in developing nations, as the modules can be implemented quickly and safely using local labourers.
The video below shows the installation of a new triple span, dual lane bridge at Parsonage Creek, New South Wales, Australia.
With rising demand for bridges, InQuik have successfully installed, or currently have under design and fabrication, close to 60 bridges since introducing the system with their first commercial bridge in April 2017.
The innovative design of the InQuik system was recognised when it won the 2019 T.C. Graham Prize from the Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST), an international award encouraging the development of new and innovative uses for steel.
“We have an excellent partnership with InQuik, which started from when they commenced operations out of Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia. We continue to work together on numerous commissions, share market intelligence and actively pursue opportunities that align with both our organisations’ strategies.” said Trevor Sullivan, Director Infrastructure, SMEC Australia.
The SMEC Foundation was founded on our employees’ sensitivity to disadvantage and desire to make a difference. Our colleagues are adept at developing constructive approaches to alleviating hardship. While funding is critical, the hands-on support provided by our locally based offices and teams makes the execution of these projects particularly effective.
SMEC carried out the detailed engineering design services for the project, harmonizing the design and construction methodology with the adjacent North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR), another major infrastructure undertaking in the Philippines. The two projects will be built on the shared corridor of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) right of way.
Libby Paholski, SMEC Functional General Manager of Environment & Social Development Group - ASEAN, recently spoke at the 2022 International Development Opportunities Seminar. The seminar was organised by the Australian Government through the Australian Embassy in Manila and the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade).
SMEC is pleased to announce that they have joined the Qazaq Green Association in Khazakhstan as a member. With global expertise and as a trusted partner for our clients, SMEC has significant experience in renewables projects and enabling sustainability objectives in key infrastructure projects.
