Structural Member Repair and Replacement

We provide a multi disciplined work force to provide a safe and responsive service for repairs to structural members.

This is carried out by first identifying the problem through a third party report or by our inspection team.

Once the problem is identified our engineers will agree a repair strategy, which will consider installing temporary works before the member is removed.  The replacement member will be structurally assessed by an independant design engineer.

PCR are certified to the The Register of Qualified Steelwork Contractors Scheme for Bridgeworks (RQSC).

The new member will be installed in full compliance with the method statement and risk assessment.

The RQSC allows certified users to work on the following

  • Bridges made principally from plate girders
  • Bridges made principally from trusswork
  • Bridges with stiffened complex platework (eg in decks, box girders or arch boxes)
  • Cable-supported bridges (eg cable-stayed or suspension) and other major structures (eg 100 metre span)
  • Moving bridges
  • Bridge refurbishment
  • Footbridge and sign gantries
  • Ancillary structures in steel associted with bridges, footbridges or sign gantries (eg grillages, purpose-made temporary works)
