Our Design Center Is Your Project Resource for Timber Bridges

Your comprehensive resource for all things related to bridge design and construction. Whether you're an engineer, architect, contractor, or enthusiast, our center provides a wealth of information to assist you in your bridge projects. From loading diagrams to CAD drawings, section views to decking and guide rail designs, we've got you covered.

Generic Loading Diagrams & Section Views

Understanding the loads that a bridge must withstand is crucial in designing a structure that is safe and durable. Our loading diagrams provide detailed information on various types of loads, including live loads, dead loads, wind loads, and seismic loads. With clear visuals and explanatory notes, you'll be equipped to make informed decisions about your bridge design.

Generic Span Drawings

Visualizing the span of a bridge is essential for assessing its structural integrity and functionality. Our span drawings offer detailed depictions of different bridge configurations, including free span bridges, repetitive span bridges, multiple span bridges, and more.

CAD Drawings

For precise planning and execution of bridge projects, CAD drawings are indispensable tools. Our collection of CAD drawings encompasses a wide range of bridge designs. Whether you're designing a new bridge or retrofitting an existing one, our CAD resources provide the detailed specifications you need to begin your planning.

Handrail & Guide Rail Designs

The decking and guide rail are essential elements of any bridge, contributing to both its functionality and aesthetics. Our design center offers a variety of decking options, including timber and composite materials, each with its unique advantages and considerations.

Project Cutsheets

Our project cutsheets offer concise yet comprehensive summaries of bridge projects, providing essential specifications and visual representations on a single page. Each cutsheet includes key details such as project dimensions, materials used, construction methods, and notable features.
