Williams Brothers Capabilities
Williams Brothers handles all phases of construction
Williams Brothers is first and foremost a bridge builder. We offer our clients seasoned specialty crews who have mastered their crafts and skills in all aspects of bridge construction. We’ve driven piling in harsh marine environments and drilled shafts within active, urban settings. From our foundation work to super elevated structures, Williams Brothers has perfected approaches and techniques that result in increased durability, reduced on-site work and construction time, minimal traffic disruption and environmental impact, and lower life cycle costs.
We have an unprecedented history of constructing most of Texas’ exotic and complex bridge structures. WB’s portfolio includes all the existing cable stayed bridges in the State of Texas: the Veterans Memorial Bridge (1990) over the Neches River built using the State’s initial design-build project delivery method; the Fred Hartman Bridge (1995) over the Houston Ship Channel, which is the longest cable stayed bridge in Texas; and the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge by Santiago Calatrava (2011) over the Trinity River, an iconic landmark in Dallas’ skyline.
Our project work also encompasses segmental bridge construction which is typically implemented in limited access locations but also has its own aesthetic appeal. Williams Brothers built the Texas Turnpike Authority Houston Ship Channel Bridge on Beltway 8 (1982), the longest box girder span in the Western Hemisphere at the time of construction; the Quintana Beach Bridge (2003), using a cast-in-place balanced cantilever construction; and the IH 10 over the Trinity River Bridge (2011), twin bridges using both cast-in-place concrete balanced cantilever segmental main spans and precast, prestressed concrete beam approach spans.
