—For almost 160 years, Waagner-Biro has been building bridges. During this time, the company has built over 4,000 bridges in many parts of the world.—
The art of breaking boundaries.
In so doing, Waagner-Biro, then as today, has made a valuable contribution to expanding infrastructures, constructing architecturally impressive bridges and has, time and time again, created new examples of the art of modern engineering. This art is seen in a row of bridges across the Danube in Vienna, the New Rethe Bascule Bridge in Hamburg, several bridge building projects in Indonesia and the Philippines, and in the Punte Continental, the longest suspension bridge in Peru. In the construction of steel bridges, Waagner-Biro covers the entire product spectrum.
Cable-stayed, suspension, arch, plate-girder or even architecturally sophisticated bridges. These and other types of special bridges impress not only with their sheer size and span, they are also architecturally interesting constructions that have the potential to visually dominate the landscapes in which they stand.
These provide a quick and efficient improvement in infrastructure. This type of bridge is characterized by its fixed components which enable easy adaptation to individual requirements. Its markets are in regions which have a corresponding deficit in their infrastructures, like South-East Asia and Africa.
This modular bridge concept is a flexible unit assembly system whose advantage is in its extremely short construction time. So panel bridges are often used as emergency bridges, temporary bridges, or military bridges.
