Marcos Sanchez

European Leader, Bridge and Civil Structures

I am a chartered Civil Engineer with 25 years experience in the design and construction of Bridges and other complex Civil Structures. I am currently the discipline skills leader in the European Region. 

Having spent most of my career working in detailed design of large bridges in Design and Build contracts I hold a wide experience in bridge construction methods as well as the whole process of bridge design from conceptual stages to operation and maintenance.

My technical expertise covers highway, pedestrian and rail bridges including high speed, with a wide range of materials, concrete, steel and composite; structural forms: multispan postensioned boxes, arches, bow string and cable stayed  bridges, with a focus on a wide range of construction methods: segmental, span by span, balanced cantilever or launched.

One of my prime interests is the relationship between design and construction teams of long span bridges during the construction stages, focusing on robustness and efficient delivery chain environments minimizing the risks and challenges associated to complex world class infrastructure projects and providing best value for money to our clients.
