Pumarejo bridge, the ‘Colossus of the Caribbean’

Spanning a length of 2,173 meters with a 38.1 meter deck, it is one of the most emblematic infrastructures in Latin America.

Pumarejo bridge

The Pumarejo Bridge (Barranquilla, Colombia) is one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in Colombia, a major reference in terms of its innovation, design, and safety. At 2,173 meters in length with a 38.1 meter deck, the widest in Latin America, this bridge is a real challenge in terms of engineering. 

Which is why we used the most advanced building techniques to tackle this challenge. It was the first time that some of these technologies, such as the self-launching formwork used to build the deck, had been used in Colombia. 

This project, launched by Colombia’s national road institute, Invias, executed by Sacyr Ingeniería e Infraestructuras, and completed in 2019, has improved the navigability of the Magdalena River, allowing larger ships to pass beneath it. Thanks to this project, vessels up to 45 meters high can now pass beneath the bridge, and the length of the main cable-stayed span is 380 meters.

Pumarejo is one of the longest bridges of its kind in Colombia. It is a two-way bridge, with three lanes in each direction, 1 km of viaducts and access points, 3.2 km of pedestrian walkways, and a further 3.2 km of cycle lanes. A titanic feat of engineering that looks ahead to the future.

Infrastructure that improves the lives of people 

The Pumarejo Bridge has not only improved Colombia’s road connections, it has also generated a positive impact on the development of the country and the quality of life of its citizens. 

Over the course of this four-year project, 5,600 jobs have been created. At the peak of activity, there were 1,500 people working on this project, 80% of whom were from the region itself. Engineers, welders, machinery operators, framers, metal workers, site managers.

All the workers involved with this project have brought their expertise, hard work and enthusiasm to this extremely technical and highly symbolic feat of engineering.

El Tepual airport, in Puerto Montt (Chile)

We have renovated El Tepual airport, in Puerto Montt (Chile) to offer better service to passengers.

Aeropuerto El Tepual en Puerto Montt (Chile)

El Tepual is located in the Región de Los Lagos, in the south of Chile, and is the third airport in Chile, with 2 million passengers every year. 

The concession company (Sacyr Concesiones and Agunsa) has invested €34 million to renovate the facilities and expand them by nearly 6,000 square meters.

Among other actions, the expansion includes a new boarding bridge, the enlargement of the aircraft parking apron, and a new control tower

To enhance comfort for airport users, diverse assistance services for people with reduced mobility have been added, as well as podotactile accessible routes and a major number of seats in the boarding lounge.

This expansion will increase the airport capacity to 3 million passengers every year, which will improve the national and international position of the El Tepual airport as an entryway to the south of Chile and its island, Patagonian and Antarctic regions.

Ulster University: 21st Century campus 

With the construction of two new buildings, we have turned the Belfast campus into a more modern and versatile educational space.

Ulster University

Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures has successfully completed the state-of-the-art Ulster University Belfast campus project. The project consisted on the development of two new blocks located in York Street, opposite the current campus building.

With more than 75,000 sq. m.building area, one is 4 storeys and the other is 11 storeys high the facilities include more than 300 learning spaces, 2 lecture theatres with 350 and 250 seats respectively, 18 elevators, a two-story library and private study sections which can accommodate up to 500 students, a biometric laboratory, nine catering outlets including a rooftop café.

We used BIM technology and digital processes in the design to guarantee an effective and collaborative approach: all the stages in the development of the design, construction and delivery were optimized and monitored on a large scale by all the members of this project.

Commitment to sustainability

This state-of-the-art building is a modern construction that combines Victorian inspiration from local architecture and modern, using long-lasting materials, resulting in a sustainable building which can accommodate more than 15,000 university students and staff.

One of the most singular spaces in campus is the rooftop garden, which even has trees which were included as part of Belfast City's urban reforestation plan and its commitment to sustainability.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Award

This project received the Considerate Constructors Scheme 2017 Award in the UK in its silver category because “the site demonstrated extraordinary compliance in improving image and construction, obtaining 5 points in the Code of Consideration Practice”.
