Our client is the largest Belgian group, operating in the construction of buildings, infrastructure, environmental projects and roads. They are now recruting for a Quantity Surveyor to work on a prestigious bridge project in Denmark.
Infomation on the project:
The project consists of the construction of a new 4-lane dual carriageway over a distance of 8.2 km, linking Frederikssund and Skibbyvej. The infrastructural project includes a 1.4 km tolled high bridge over the fjord and 11 smaller civil structures (bridges, fauna passages, cycle lane passages). The new crossing will replace an existing bascule bridge built in 1935 and is supposed to relieve severe traffic congestion on the current bridge.
The client praised the winning bid as it was the only proposal of a bridge with larger spans, which reduces the number of pillars needed, and a modified length profile. Another important award criterion was the consideration of the surroundings. Indeed, the Fjord of Roskilde is designated as a Natura 2000 area as it is a habitat for sensitive vegetation (eelgrass) and an important refuge for water fowls. The location of residential areas very near to the construction site and difficult access possibilities for marine and land pose additional challenges with regards to logistics, dust, noise and traffic management.
The project will start in November 2016 (Design). On site works are scheduled to start in February 2017 and will presumably end in late 2019. The project represents a contract value of about 133 million € – each partner has a 1/3 share in the JV.
