Øresund Bridge, Denmark-Sweden
Depending on the constraints of each project location and the time available for the construction process the methods used have an important influence on the success of the project
Within the COWI Group we have accumulated know-how concerning construction and erection methods which have been used for bridge construction around the world.


The right combination of methods is one of the main keys to a successful bridge project.

Assistance for the planning stage includes:


  • General planning of the construction works
  • Development of erection schemes
  • Assessment of the dynamic behaviour of the bridge during the construction stages
  • Development of layouts for construction and prefabrication sites
  • Conceptual design of erection equipment
  • Risk analysis.
