The importance of carrying out bearing and expansion joint inspections by proficient and competent engineers who understand their functionality can often be key to maximising a structure’s lifespan and avoiding major, unexpected, emergency repair costs.
USL Ekspan have carried out a number of projects for swing bridges and foot bridges. From design, fabrication of all structural components, to trial erection and final installation. Details of these type of bridge installations can be supplied on request.
The fixed spherical bearings will be installed during the construction phase within the various lift shafts to provide controlled movement functionality.
Due to the extreme location of the bearings access to carry out significant maintenance on the bearings would be extremely difficult, therefore the contractor and engineer opted for a complete stainless-steel bearing arrangement. Material selection, precise bearing function coupled with the high quality British manufactured components will enable these bearings to function in this extremely busy environment with very little to no maintenance over the bearing life.
Schiphol Airport’s new terminal and Pier once completed will help increase the airport’s existing capacity by an additional 14 million passengers, raising the overall capacity above 70 million passengers every year.
USL Ekspan looks forward to seeing the completed build.
