Delivering Solutions that Connect.

OBEC has designed more than 2,500 concrete, steel, and timber bridges, with expertise in all types of precast concrete, curved steel plate girders, and arch bridges. We are also regional leaders in load rating, historic rehabilitation, moveable bridges, and unique long-span pedestrian bridge design.

Our staff members have provided bridge engineering services to highway departments, counties, cities, universities, parks, port districts, and many other public and private organizations, and our innovative designs represent a wide range of creative solutions.

No matter what the span length, material, or location, we help agencies confirm that their bridges are safe and resilient by providing bridge inventory and assessment, as well as specialized seismic evaluation and seismic retrofit design services.
