Our references

Road bridges

Designing bridges at all stages of preparation and construction is our main specialization. We have completed dozens of successful projects from small bridges to large and complex highway constructions. Show road bridges

Pedestrian bridges

Bridges for pedestrians and cyclists are the spice of our design work. Unlike road bridges, they allow for more freedom and for original and creative architectural solutions. Many of our projects have been awarded prestigious industry awards. Show pedestrian bridges

Studies

We participate in architectural competitions with our studies of road bridges and pedestrian bridges. We are not afraid to embark on original solutions and combine modern trends, novel design and unconventional materials with the sensitive setting of the construction within the environment. Even with the most daring proposals, however, we take into account the reality and economy of the project.  View studies

People

Our team currently consists of more than four dozen highly qualified employees — engineers, designers and administrative staff. Most of them work at the parent company in Brno. A subsidiary in Slovakia currently employs seven engineers with the complete support of the parent company. The management of the subsidiary in Banská Bystrica is entrusted to Ing. Martin Kollár.

A staggered trestle for a Tesco shopping mall

On the existing I / 37 road between Hradec Králové and Pardubice. The cross-section of a substantially planar curved, continuous 13-pole structure is a variable-width trapezoidal plate that is mounted on single-pillar supports with a widened head on pairs of bearings. In the longitudinal direction, the load-bearing structure is designed as reinforced concrete, on supports that are reinforced by transverse pre-stressing. Pre-tensioning cables over pillars reduce bending stress in the lateral direction.
