Bridge Repair & Maintenance

Preserving the safety and structural integrity of your city’s bridges  

When bridge structures incur damage, develop corrosion or need to be upgraded to meet new compliance codes we know it’s vital that the project is completed urgently, to the highest quality and with the utmost concern to safety and regulations. MaxBuild can strengthen concrete using specified Sika or Mapei systems and can provide a full repair process that encompasses crack injection, spall repairs, and anti-carbonation coatings, bridge joints, guard rail replacements to protect the concrete substrate.

Our service includes full access if required, containment of debris from the environment, and our team are certified to work at height and in confined spaces. Where there is an inability to close the bridge during project delivery we can minimize the impact of traffic by utilising rope access where possible.

Exceeding industry standards for Health and Safety

You can trust MaxBuild to complete your Bridge Maintenance projects and meet compliance and certification requirements. You can feel confident that we will not only meet our industry’s Health and Safety statutory requirements but that we will exceed them and these are regularly audited.

The Site Safe Civil Passport is the minimum requirement for all our employees and contractors. We also ensure that they have recognised training relevant to the area they will be working in. For bridge maintenance this includes:

  • First Aid
  • Working At Heights
  • Traffic Control
  • Concrete Cutting
  • Elevated Work Platform

All MaxBuild employees and contractors are also aware of and effectively manage the environmental impact of all work-related activities to ensure the sustainability of your city’s environment.
