Civils Post Tensioning

The Freyssinet Group worldwide has been involved with many of the iconic civil construction projects of the 20th and 21stCentury, including the UK based Channel Tunnel Rail Link and the award winning Millau Viaduct in France.

Freyssinet have also been involved with a number of significant infrastructure development projects within Southern Africa including work on the Green Point, Royal Bafokeng and Durban stadiums for the 2010 World Cup and the Gautrain Rapid Rail System between Johannesburg and Pretoria.

In addition, through the use of the K and C Range stressing systems, Freyssinet can offer expertise within a wide range of civils applications including:

  • Freeway and Rail Network Long Span Bridge Structures
  • Bridge Repairs and Refurbishment
  • Water Reservoirs
  • Gas Storage Tanks
  • Port and Marine Development Works

Through the application of post tensioning, greater spans can be achieved, often with a reduction in materials over conventionally reinforced construction, therefore creating high profile, signature structures while helping to limit the environmental impact, reinforcing Freyssinet's commitment to Sustainable Technology.
