The Floating Bridge is one of Dubai’s most famous bridges and an engineering marvel. This superstructure was created in just ten months and was designed & built by us here at Waagner Biro. The first-of-its-kind bridge provides crossing over Dubai Creek for approximately 6,000 vehicles an hour across its six lanes.
The development of structural steel as a building material has contributed significantly to the growth of the industrialised world and has helped shape our modern way of life. Without structural steel, the building of railways, bridges and skyscrapers; the opening up of mines, the construction of factories for the manufacture of goods, and the production and transmission of power would not be what it is today. Structural steel companies in Dubai have played a vital role in the development of the iconic infrastructures, such as the Al Maktoum Bridge or the Louvre Abu Dhabi, for which the major cities in the UAE are known today.
On the back of decades of expertise in designing and building bridges, in 1964 Waagner Biro was approached by an Austrian construction firm to work on the Al Maqta Bridge in Abu Dhabi.
It has a total length of approximately 300m was the first landmark bridge in Abu Dhabi and the first solid connection of Abu Dhabi Island with the mainland constructed in 1967. It was also the first project of Waagner Biro Gulf in the Region.
If you’ve ever been aboard a superyacht, you understand the unadulterated joys of modern, luxury seafaring. With new superyacht marinas popping up around the world, and the rise in popularity of sailing and water sports, marine and coastal engineers have had to come up with innovative ways of providing modern docking platforms that meet the requirements of the elite superyacht club. Modern floating pontoon systems offer an ideal solution to expand the capacity of superyacht marinas and provide optimal access without detracting from the natural beauty of the surrounding waters (and superyachts, of course!).
Following on from the construction of our state-of-the-art Fabrication Yard, Warner Biro Gulf has moved to our new facilities in Al Quoz. This new facility will enable us to further improve the quality of service and organisation in the company.
