From road stream crossings to high-profile arch bridges, the structural team at Benesch has designed thousands of bridge structures ranging from 35 to 2,000 feet. Our engineers are proficient in the study and design of continuous complex structures, including plate girder, tied arch, segmental box girder, continuous/cantilever truss and cable stay bridges. In addition, we specialize in high order finite element analysis associated with various forms of nonlinear and buckling behavior. We are relentless in the pursuit of industry advancements, and pride ourselves on implementing innovative solutions.


Benesch has been awarded several Eminent Conceptor awards from the American Council of Engineering Companies and has consistently been named as a top 50 “Go To” firm for bridge design by government subscribers of Roads and Bridges magazine.
