Bridges

Bridge design requires experience and skill, and HILCON’s team is rich in both. With a portfolio that boasts major clients in both the public and private sectors, and expert structural engineers with decades of combined experience, HILCON’s team is more than prepared to engineer an innovative, cost effective and practical bridge that meets your specifications. Our team’s construction experience combined with our design excellence to produce client satisfaction.

Engineers from our structural group work closely with our hydraulic and civil groups to ensure the project is completed seamlessly from concept, through design, to tender for all types of bridges.

Marine and Coastal

Situated in Atlantic Canada, engineering for Marine and Coastal areas is an essential part of our expertise. Our professional engineers design structures to withstand the unique and often harsh conditions of a coastal environment. HILCON has worked in many of the harbours throughout Atlantic Canada, engineering solutions that suit the location by accounting for the many variables of seaside construction including large tidal variations.
HILCON has designed marine facilities for small craft, fishing vessels, cargo-container ships, and cruise ships. We carefully assess the feasibility of each project, and work closely with our clients to develop innovative solutions.

Defence

Protective structures such as demolition range and artillery range observation bunkers and ammunition storage buildings require specialized engineer expertise. These structures are engineered to withstand various blast pressure effects, high-velocity impacts and potential large penetration by munitions. Our team members are experienced with the effects of explosives and munitions and in the unique design requirements associated with protective design.

HILCON has worked closely with the Department of National Defence to develop unique structures for the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering in New Brunswick.

Buildings

HILCON’s diverse team has engineers trained and experienced in commercial and industrial building design. Our well rounded experience enable us to take on building projects where considerations like heritage restoration, current building codes, and modern practices must all be addressed simultaneously.

Project Management

HILCON has an exceptional team of talented project managers that can take your project from planning to completion and seamlessly manage every step in-between.
HILCON’s professional project management service provides effective coordination of all project components to keep everything on time and on budget. We understand how to keep projects running smoothly by working closely with the project team and stakeholders.

Quantities

HILCON uses a phased approach that refines quantity estimates as detail design progresses. Accurate quantities provide sound estimates critical to the budgeting process. HILCON’s advanced estimate calculations provide accurate figures for the quantity of materials needed for each job. This process is designed to safeguard your budget, while ensuring the job is completed to the rigorous standards of quality HILCON is known for.

Estimates

A sound estimate is critical to planning and budgeting for a project. HILCON uses a phased approach that refines the estimate as detail design progresses. Our experience estimating various infrastructure projects allows us to assist our clients with budgeting for a project from the early planning stages to construction.

We understand budgetary restrictions and will provide options and solutions to help make any project a success.

Inspections

A critical part of quality assurance is full-time construction inspection. HILCON offers this service to our clients ensuring that the construction is completed in accordance with the project specifications. In addition to construction inspection, HILCON’s experienced staff performs condition inspections of various types of infrastructure such as bridges, buildings and culverts.
