As a main contractor or co-maker in leading projects, Solidd designs, manufactures and assembles complex (movable) steel bridges, possibly including movement works and automation.

No bridge to far or to complex

As an expert in dynamically loadable, movable steel structures, at Solidd we design, manufacture and assemble all types of (mainly) movable steel bridges, possibly including movable structures and automation. We do this as a main contractor or as a co-maker. Steel plates form the basis of the constructions, therefore the most challenging architectural forms are possible, despite the sometimes gigantic construction sizes.

Efficient an innovative solutions

Our many years of experience and expertise in bridges enables us to comply to the strict laws and regulations in bridge construction. Together with the client, we strive to achieve the most efficient and innovative steel solution, with attention to use, management and maintenance.

Complete, operational delivery

At Solidd, we have the expertise to design and build a complete bridge in-house at a unique location on the Princess Margriet Canal. With a computer-controlled (CNC) cutting machine, our own machining equipment and having a preservation hall located on our business park, we can transport the entire product to the project location. There, the bridge is safely installed and commissioned by our own site installation teams and partners for automation.

Weirs and locks

Solidd is an expert in complex projects for new construction of (primary) weirs, and is often involved in (complex) renovations of non-serial weirs and locks of the major Dutch waterways.

New construction and renovation

A weir or a lock is characterized by extreme precision in dimensional stability and watertightness. At Solidd we like to think along with our clients and partners in complex projects. However, we mainly focus on renovations sizing from small to very large non-standard weirs and locks in the major waterways in the Netherlands.

Temporary constructions

We have extensive expertise in the field of temporary constructions on site. These are often necessary to be able to inspect the object before renovation in our conditioned production hall.

Work on location
