Part of: Construction Innovation: Demands, Successes and Lessons


Each heavy construction project presents unique conditions and challenges. For large projects, the work scope may justify an extensive engineering analysis and significant investments for advanced technology. This paper describes the conditions present on several example projects and the construction innovations developed to meet these challenges. The examples stem primarily from a bridge construction project.
