Waterloo Bridge Engineering


Did you know that the earliest suspension bridges were made of twisted grass? When Spanish conquistadors arrived in Peru in 1532, they marvelled at an Incan empire connected by hundreds of suspension bridges—some more than 45 meters long! And this was 300 years before the first suspension bridge was built in Europe.

At G. Douglas Vallee Limited, we build bridges in Canada—and we definitely use longer lasting material than twisted grass… though we think our bridges are just as impressive! All right, so maybe it’s hard to create a bridge that’s more impressive than a grass bridge across a deep mountain gorge, but our Waterloo bridge engineering techniques are certainly safer.

In the history of our practice, we’ve successfully undertaken hundreds of bridge and other structural engineering projects, including new and replacement structures, rehabilitations, and more. We’re comfortable with a wide variety of building materials—wood, steel, concrete, masonry… sadly, not twisted grass—and can tailor our provided services to the needs to your project.
