USL International is a civil engineering and construction organisation focusing on bridges, tunnels, rail and major structures and are able to offer our clients a comprehensive service encompassing the manufacture, supply and installation of specialist construction products including bridge expansion joints, structural & industrial bearings and drainage systems.
Bridge repairs can often amount to 10-30% of the updated construction cost, and large repairs may even exceed the updated construction cost and still be the preferred option when compared to the cost of traffic interruption and demolition. As moisture is the most significant factor in concrete deterioration, incorporating sufficient waterproofing at the design stage is by far the most cost-effective option.
The maintenance of rail infrastructure is essential in order to ensure train travel across the UK remains as safe and uninterrupted as possible. A multi-disciplinary manufacturer and installer, USL International offer an extensive range of services within this sector, from surface mounted tactile paving to structural waterproofing. Working across the industry, USL Group’s vast client portfolio includes Network Rail and London Underground.
Often subject to heavy loads both above and throughout the structure, tunnel maintenance is essential to ensure safety for all road users. We understand the complexities the tunnel environment brings; working in constraints of space, limited light and implementing efficient traffic management.
