Underground storm water management, storm sewers, stream enclosures, culverts, bridges, LCC analysis, recycled steel, and more.

  • Bridges

    The Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code (CHBDC) and many jurisdictions define a bridge as a structure with a span greater than three metres. Standard CSP culverts are available in diameters up to 3600 mm or in pipe arch shapes with spans up to 4370 mm. Long lengths of lightweight CSP make for fast, economical bridge installations.

  • Hydraulics and Hydrology

    Ensuring CSPs are installed properly to efficiently move water at all stages of flow. Proper design and inlet control, plus headwater depth and outlet control all need to be worked into the equation.

  • LCC Analysis

    Value Engineering and Least Cost Analysis consider the cost of a project over its entire design life. Such issues as performance, maintainability, safety, and aesthetics are critical requirements.

  • Storm Sewers

    Alleviate urban flooding by using CSP storm sewers to collect and direct storm water runoff.

  • Stream Enclosures

    Using CSP to enclose a natural stream as it passes through heavily developed urban areas can protect people, infrastructure, land values, and the ecology of the stream itself.

  • Sustainability

    Given the increased awareness of “green” construction, there is tremendous opportunity to promote steel due to its major recycled content and recyclability attributes it offers the designer and specifying community.

  • Underground Storm Water Management

    Urbanization requires new drainage concepts for the safe and efficient management of storm water runoff. Retention, detention, and groundwater recharge systems are all options that may be constructed with CSP.
