St Luke’s School Bridge, Exeter

Sector: Education Project: 5 of 5

Paul Owen Associates provided full civil and structural engineering design services for the new bridge structure for the new St Luke’s School as part of the Exeter schools programme.  A complex structure was required to meet the Architect’s and planner’s requirements for a statement bridge as part of the school development. The structure is curved to two directions along the length of the bridge with elliptical shaped columns.  Innovative pre-cast concrete techniques were employed to minimise disruption to the highway.

Key Facts

  • complex foundation designed to receive precast concrete columns
