Case Study – Dubai Desert Golf Club – SIS FiberCore FRP Bridges

When the time came for the developers and designers of the brand new Dubai Desert Golf Club to select and specify the required bridges, they made the best choice currently available in the world today. Our maintenance-free, clear span single element FRP bridges offer an excellent alternative to traditional offerings such timber, steel or concrete. The reduced weight of our structures also limits the costs associated with transport and lifting and also presents cost savings in abutments and civil works.

 

It is no wonder that some of the 700 SIS FiberCore FRP bridges installed worldwide find themselves located on some of the top courses in the world, such as the Dubai Desert Golf Club.

SIS Launches FibreCore Europe’s FRP Clear Span Composite Bridges From 2m to 30m in to Australia & New Zealand

Until now, lightweight large single span composite bridges have not been available to designers, architects, engineers and stakeholders in Australia & New Zealand. Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS) is proud to introduce FiberCore Europe’s InfraCore® Inside technology. More than 700 InfraCore® bridges and bridge decks have been delivered in the Netherlands, Belgium, England, France, Italy, Sweden, Norway, China and the USA. An important moment in the development of the company was the real scale research, which proved that the InfraCore® technology does not show any fatigue or any other structural failure for 100 years. The ability to pre fabricate bridge elements off-site can dramatically improve how projects are delivered. Ultimately, this method of construction provides significant benefits when it comes to maximising speed and safety and minimising disruption. The low weight of our InfraCore® elements and manufacturing off-site has some significant advantages.

 

  1. The disruption to surrounding road or rail infrastructure can be heavily reduced;
  2. Safety risks associated with construction are redirected towards the manufacturing plant – being controlled environments there is much less that can go wrong, when it comes to safety;
  3. Production of elements off-site means projects are more predictable when it comes to costs;
  4. Reduction of labour necessary for constructing projects on site, which is a significant benefit when it comes to projects in congested or remote areas;
  5. Abutments and / or foundations required are approximately one third of that required for concrete and steel constructions;
  6. Construction speed will minimise building time and road closures. For construction work that is well prepared, our FRP bridges can be installed within one hour.
