Our structural practice includes analysis and design capabilities in the use of fiber reinforced polymers (FRP). This area of practice includes design of new structures and upgrading and rehabilitating existing civil engineering infrastructure using new materials and construction techniques. Typical applications include concrete column and timber pile wrapping, FRP Rebar in marine and bridge structures and strengthening of structural members by attaching FRP sheets. MacDonnell is a continuous supporter of research in this area carried out by ISIS Canada and is one of the few companies to offer technical design services in this field.
