Bridge Systems Process

Approach

Professional Approach

SFC Bridge Systems' professional approach ensures that the owner, engineer and contractor get a quality product with the best solution for each project.

Design Integration

Team Solution

SFC Bridge Systems work with local engineers by providing them with sketches, drawings and preliminary designs for each project. Our represenatives are all engineers that can answer any question and offer guidance on our products.

Before Your Project Bids

Cost Analysis

Before a project bids, we work with contractors by answering questions, providing quotes, drawings, pick weights and production schedule. We work quickly and honestly with contractors to ensure that there is no hidden cost associated with the installation of our products.

After Your Project Bids

Submittals

After a project bids, our engineering team prepares a set of submittals for the contractor. Depending on the DOT, city or other specifications, these often include construction drawings, foundation design, precast shop drawings and bridge calculations. Our experienced engineers have the quickest turnaround in the industry allowing production to begin as soon as possible.

Production

Production Work

After drawing approval, our APA approved precast plant starts on production of the bridge, headwalls and wingwalls. The production takes place using quality steel forms and under controlled plant conditions. While production is underway, the contractor works to clear the site and prepare the bridge foundation.

Installation

Contractors

Working with the contractor, SFC Bridge Systems establishes a day for installation. We arrange and coordinate trucking so that the precast pieces arrive in a timely fashion and in an order to facilitate quick installation.

Timing

Onsite Representation

Our onsite representative is there to offer guidance and to make sure that there is a flawless installation in a timely manner. Enitire projects are often times installed all in one day!

APPLICATIONS

Typical applications and locations of precast arch bridges include the following:

Pedestrian Bridges Over water features in residential communities, golf courses and country clubs.
Vehicular Stream Crossings Aesthetic viaducts in lieu of conventional beam or box culverts
Lighted Tunnels Underground passage under busy roadways, railways and structures.

Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) Approves SFC Bridges

SFC Bridge Systems

Fort Worth, TX

TXDOT

The custom designed precast system, approved by the Texas Departmenet of Transportation, allows for total "set in place" construction of bridges, overpasses, culverts and underground structures, including requirements for retention and containment. Backfilling of these bridge configurations can begin immediately! The arch system also allows for curved alignments.

The off-site fabrication and production assures faster installation, minimizes road closings and detours and eliminates costly maintenance of an exposed bridge deck and bridge deck icing.

The versatility of the arch-box system makes it cost effective and appealing for a variety of other applications, including wine storage, airports, railroads, golf courses, boat passages, pedestrian walkways, storage, retention, enclosures and containment. All are easily enhanced with architectural treatments.
