Services

At FINLEY we provide engineering and consulting services from concept through construction on complex, high-technology bridge projects. Our expertise is deep in both traditional design-bid-build and design-build environments, and because we understand the relationship between design and construction as well as anyone, we add value for our clients and contribute to the success of the project no matter what role we play.

 

Bridge Design

Our staff has a depth of design and value engineering experience in a variety of bridge types, including long span, segmental, steel, arch and concrete beam bridges. We blend our years of experience with our expert knowledge and use the latest technology to produce economical, constructible designs that best meet the needs of the owner and the project.

 

Construction Engineering

At FINLEY, we know how to play to a contractor’s strengths. We consider the means and methods that fit the contractor, not just the project, and we deliver the solution that will get the job done in the best, most cost-effective way. Our construction engineering services include shop drawings, construction and camber analysis, geometry control, falsework or temporary supports, construction manuals and technical support during construction.

When it comes to Bridge Aesthetics, our staff at FINLEY focuses on finding a balance between cost, appearance, and the overall performance of a bridge. Our team of bridge architects are specialists in aesthetics and understand the all-important link between integrating aesthetics, engineering, and construction. Our Bridge Aesthetics services include bridge design & aesthetics, 2-D & 3-D visualizations, public outreach and conceptual lighting design.
