Job Summary

AECOM is currently seeking to recruit a Senior Bridge Engineer to join the busy and expanding Bridges team in our Glasgow Citypoint office.

The Citypoint office is one of our two large offices in Glasgow both of which are within a 10 minute walk of the city centre and the main Central and Queen Street train stations. Citypoint is a modern office comprising a vibrant mix of disciplines including Major Highway Design, Bridge Design and Assessment, Railway Engineering, Geotechnical Design and Environmental Remediation. These are complemented by Water, Ports and Power, Transport Planning, Building Structures and Project Management/ QS services in the Bothwell Street office. The Bridges team provides design, assessment, inspection, repair / remediation, construction support and management services on a wide range of highway and rail infrastructure projects.

The Bridges Scotland and Ireland District combines with three other districts to give an overall UK and Ireland capacity of almost 500 bridges staff. There are 60 Bridges staff in the Scotland and Ireland District. The Glasgow team, with 40, forms the major part of this district capacity, which includes smaller teams in Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin working closely together. The District Managers work collaboratively to ensure that a seamless service is maintained across the whole region.

Our current portfolio of works comprises a diverse mix of local, national and international bridges and structures projects in both the highway and rail sectors and includes numerous long-term framework commissions.

  • A selection of current and recent project work undertaken in Glasgow includes:

  • Forth Replacement Crossing, Scotland – AECOM was the Design Checker on this prestigious £1 billion project employed by the international Joint Venture contractors.

  • M7 Naas, Ireland – AECOM is current the Designer for the SIAC/Colas Joint Venture contractor on this £100m project which involves the construction of two 100m long bridges over the River Liffey as well as several other principal highway structures. The Bridges team in Glasgow is undertaking the bulk of this work in support of our colleagues in Dublin.

  • Civils Assessment Framework Agreement (CAFA) – AECOM is currently employed by Network Rail across five of its rail routes on this framework contract. The Glasgow team works together with the Newcastle and Edinburgh teams to complete the CAFA work in Scotland and also supports other offices in work within their areas. The work involves the inspection and assessment of overbridges, footbridges and underbridges in a multitude of structural materials and forms.

  • York Street Interchange and Dargan Viaduct, Belfast – AECOM were appointed in 2008 by Northern Ireland’s national highway authority to develop this vital grade-separated motorway junction scheme in Belfast through the DMRB stage assessment process. The preferred scheme, now close to construction stage, involves the construction of deep underpasses in challenging ground conditions as well as several bridges and numerous retaining walls. It also includes complex strengthening of the existing piled foundations of the Dargan Rail Viaduct to future proof the structure for potential widening to cater for two tracks in 15 years’ time.
