2.2km Vehicular Bridge, Peloponnese, Greece
This was a BOT project awarded by the Greek State to a consortium with Vinci of France as a leader. It provides a link between the Peloponnese, the southern part of Greece, and the main continent along the Western shores of the country between the coastal towns of Rio and Andirio. The link consists of a 2,252 meter long 4 pylon cable-stayed bridge with two spans of 286 meters and three spans of 560 meters, two approach viaducts, with 392 meters on the Rio side and 239 meters on the Andirio side, and a total length of about 2,900 meters. Design and construction of the bridge started in 1996 and the bridge was inaugurated in 2004. In the concession agreement the Firm was a nominated partner of Buckland and Taylor of Canada for the design checking of all elements of the project as well as participating actively in the seismic design concepts. Furthermore, the Firm was a nominated partner of Faber-Maunsell (U.K.) for the supervision and control of all elements of the project. In 2006, the Firm and B. Kolias, it's partner in charge of Structural Design, received two International awards for their contribution to the project: The IABSE (International Association of Bridge and Structural Engineering) award for outstanding structure and the FIB (Federation Internationale du Beton) award for outstanding concrete structure.
Athens International Airport
Master Plan and Structural Design, Joint Venture, Greece
Structural Design & Infrastructure
The Firm was involved in this project during two separate stages. First, in 1979 - 1981 as a member of the GREDECO-NACO joint venture when the original Master Plan was prepared and second in 1996-1998 as a structural designer for various building assigned to the firm by HOCHTIEF AG concessionaire and contractor of the new Airport. In 1979 the Greek State awarded a contract to GREDECO, a Joint Venture of 3 Greek design firms and the Dutch firm NACO to review an existing old Master Plan and produce all designs necessary to construct a new International airport at Spata, northeast of Athens.
The new Master Plan was approved, the preliminary design of installations and infrastructure were finalized and a tender for earthworks was awarded to a contractor. Following the completion of most of the earthworks the work was halted for several years. It was resumed in 1996 when HOCHTIEF AG was awarded a concession to build and operate the new International Airport. HOCHTIEF contracted the preparation of structural designs and shop drawings for various buildings, including: The Air Traffic Control Building and Tower and the Buildings and Ground Equipment Maintenance Complex.
