Bridge foundations: What is at stake ?

Foundation works can take an extensive amount of time if they are not handled by specialists of underground works with a global approach to the entire structure.

When coming to supporting a bridge, foundations include:

– The piles (barettes or pile wall, or sometimes micro-piles for smaller bridges) support all the forces applied to the structure from top to bottom,

– Located under the pier, the pile cap is used to redistribute forces onto the several piles of the structure.
