At Earthspan we recognize the significance of both form and function in structural design

The innate beauty of a bridge can obscure the complexity of design. Physical forces are harnessed by the arrangement of structural members and redirected to the foundation in predetermined pathways that suit the circumstances. Structural design efficiency is rooted in both mathematics and art as minimal beam depth and span arrangement are balanced with the need to project onto the public an inherent feeling of substance. The process of structural analysis is dynamic...much like the design perspective at Earthspan.

SYSTEMS.

ENGINEERED.

At Earthspan we recognize the significance of both form and function in structural design. The life of a structure may span a century or beyond, which serves to highlight the importance of not only a robust design but the melding of aesthetics with project context. Whether it’s a signature bridge or a common retaining wall, at Earthspan we strive to craft our designs to be imbued with functional efficiency and timeless visual elegance.
