Corrugated metal culvert manufacturers

Corrugated metal culvert manufacturers

Corrugated metal culvert manufacturers

(OP)
I have a client who has used a specific manufacturer of arched corrugated metal culverts, but they are looking to get pricing from some other manufacturers. Does anyone have suggestions as to who I could recommend? We're the structural firm that does the footing designs for this client's culverts. The culverts are generally supporting road above, with a stream crossing below, and span anywhere from 20' to 40'+. The civil engineers we've talked to have said that the manufacturer they've been using has been buying up a lot of the smaller manufacturers in the last decade or two. Hopefully there are still some reputable alternatives out there??

RE: Corrugated metal culvert manufacturers

I'd try a magazine that usually will carry adds from many outfits in construction. Engineering news Record has been around for maybe 100 years. Go to enr.com and see what you can find . They have a phone 248-362-3700. I think this is for the main office.

edit: I see another number that may be better 648-849-7100

The more I look I see New Products guy: ENR.Products@enr.com

Contech is one of the big manufacturers of steel arches. Bebo does concrete arches. Several others out there that can be found with a quick web search; they're not hiding.

You might want to consider precast. I have seen CMP deteriorate and fail after "design service." Cost for replacement offset initial savings. Something to consider.

nackra, it depends on the alkali levels in the soil. We get a soils report from our lab that tells us where we can use metal and where we shouldn't, and also if we need Type V cement for the concrete, if it's really bad.
