Structural Engineering

The field of structural engineering comprises all work phases of the HOAI for new construction, reconstruction and repair measures of bridge structures, noise barriers, traffic sign bridges and other engineering structures. The constructions range from solid and prestressed concrete construction to steel and steel composite as well as timber construction. The planning is carried out in close coordination with the respective client as well as with the numerous other specialist departments of the company.

Bridge construction

Our experienced engineers and designers plan bridge structures of all kinds, from the design to the elaboration of complex structural models. The spectrum ranges from pedestrian and cycle path bridges to bridges in public transport and road bridges in the area of federal and federal highways.

The repair and reinforcement of existing bridges is also becoming increasingly important. After a recalculation according to the recalculation guideline of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs, the results are evaluated by engineers. If necessary, redevelopment or reinforcement measures and, if necessary, new building plans are worked out.

  • Preliminary planning and variant investigations
  • Engineering of structural solutions
  • Draft and approval planning
  • Provision of verifiable static calculations according to DIN EN 1991-2 and the valid Eurocodes
  • Preparation of verifiable implementation plans
  • Static recalculation of structures in accordance with recalculation guideline
  • Recalculation of structures or components for the installation of passive protective devices

Trough and tunnel constructions

In addition to bridge structures, trough and tunnel structures also belong to the group of the most demanding engineering structures. In many cases, critical construction conditions in particular require the assessment of experienced engineers. eberhardt – die ingenieure GmbH has the relevant experience in the field of tunnel rehabilitation, particularly with regard to reinforcement measures and e.g. the installation of subsequent drainage pipes in the course of retrofitting fire protection concepts.

Noise barriers

In the course of the constantly growing individual and freight traffic, the erection of noise barriers is gaining increasing social importance. In addition to the pure sound-absorbing function, the design and integration of the noise barrier into the existing site is of particular importance.

  • Preliminary planning and variant investigations, in particular with regard to the planned building foundation (flat foundation, foundation on reinforced concrete bored piles or steel driven piles)
  • Draft and approval planning
  • Preparation of verifiable static calculations in accordance with ZTV-Lsw 06 or the amendments to ZTV-Lsw and taking into account additional official guidelines such as the “General Circular Decree No. 22” of Stra├čen NRW
  • Preparation of verifiable implementation plans


In the field of architecture, all work phases of the HOAI are implemented in building construction and industrial construction. A special focus is the design of engineering structures.

The range of services includes:

  • implementation of municipal and private building construction measures
  • Participation in national and international realization and design contests
  • Design and visualization of engineering structures
