Bridge Engineers in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom, Northumberland, United Kingdom

Our Newcastle Bridges team requires Bridge Engineers with experience of bridge design, inspection, assessment and refurbishment schemes, to join their busy and expanding experienced Bridges team.

Current projects include a major UK 5 year rail network infrastructure framework assessment contract. In addition to the significant long-term commissions on bridge assessment and inspection, principally in the rail environment, our initial assessment often leads to the requirement for the design of the refurbishment, strengthening or replacement. We have also recently designed a new footbridge across the River Ouse in York which is an important link in the city council’s plans to improve pedestrian links across the city.

As a Bridge Engineer you will have the following daily responsibilities:

  • Undertake rail and road bridges and associated structural engineering schemes from inspection and assessment, feasibility through to detailed design.

  • Assist with supervision of Graduate Engineers and Technicians as appropriate.

  • Assist with preparation of technical documentation through to client sign off of Technical Approval documentation.

  • Hands-on technical design on road and/or rail structures.

  • Hands-on assessment of road and/or rail structures.

  • Structural inspections and reporting.

  • Excellent technical and communication skills both verbal and written.

  • Client liaison.

  • Assist with production of tenders including quality documentation and costings.

  • Assist with Project Management including programme and resource monitoring, quality control, technical management and delivery.

Our Newcastle office has an established track record of successfully delivering bridge engineering schemes for over 75 years, mainly in the North East but also throughout the UK and overseas. The team provides assessment, concept, feasibility, preliminary and detailed designs on a wide range of schemes, either as standalone bridge commissions or as part of multidisciplinary major projects. Our clients are from the private and public sector and include long-term Framework Agreements with numerous North East Local Authorities together with Design and Build commissions for many major Contractors.
