HIGHWAY & BRIDGE PROJECT MANAGMENT
ACHIEVING ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE IN THE FIELD OF BRIDGE & HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION
There are three dimensions that are involved in the planning of any mega project like a bridge. This is considered as an initial step towards the planning of structures, that would finally bring up with a project that would be advantageous to the community in all aspects. The three dimensions are: Scientific Dimension Social Dimension Technological Dimension.
The planning sequence for the construction of a new highway or a railway project is a major part of the project planning. Based on the complexity of the barrier across which the bridge must be constructed, the detailing of the project planning increases, because more investigation must be carried out.
THE VOLSON ADVANTAGE
Every road construction project is different and each work zone has its own unique hazards and challenges so creating a safety program geared specifically for the site can go a long way in preventing accidents.
The site-specific safety program include identifying all hazards, scheduling routine inspection of all equipment and materials, and emergency medical care for all employees.
Planning & Development
Good site planning, therefore, starts with a comprehensive analysis of the site, within the immediate and regional context.
The “whole of site” approach encompasses broader decisions regarding building orientation/ placement on-site, including the location of associated structures and infrastructure such as access and circulation arrangements.
Environmental Impact Assessment
The Environmental Impact Assessment involves a systematic process for identifying, predicting, and evaluating potential impacts associated with a development project.
The EIA process must proffer mitigation measures to avoid, reduce, or minimize the negative impacts on the environment, public health, and property and may highlight the foreseeable positive impacts.
