About this event

The Queensferry Crossing is currently under construction, and once complete will be the largest three-tower cable-stayed bridge in the world. 169,000 cubic metres of concrete and 34,500 tonnes of steel make up the 2.7km long structure, which will replace the Forth Road Bridge as the main transport route across the Firth of Forth in Scotland.

Stephen Knox will give an overview of the various construction techniques being used across the Works, and also give an insight into the day-to-day responsibilities of a Designer's Site Representative working on a project of this scale.

Stephen Knox is an Engineer within the Bridges team at Ramboll. He undertook a 20 month secondment as DSR Engineer on the Queensferry Crossing and was responsible for monitoring for construction compliance with design and providing construction support to the contracting joint venture, Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors. Stephen's role extended to all aspects of the construction: underwater concrete, foundations, concrete substructures, steel and concrete superstructures, cantilever construction, stay cable installation and incremental deck launches.
