As a freelance micro-consultancy specializing in structural forensics, we investigate bridge failures and claims – during design, construction, and operations. And we provide subject-matter expert services to bridge owners, designers, constructors, suppliers of components and construction machines, legal counsels, and insurance carriers.
We also offer knowledge and learning for the bridge community. Dr. Rosignoli’s books are published worldwide and cited in dozens of publications and bridge design standards. His researches, lectures and training courses are followed by tens of thousands of bridge professionals. Bridge Design & Construction, his LinkedIn forum, enjoys the participation of 16.000+ bridge engineers from every corner of the world.
Decades of experience in the design, construction, and forensic engineering of complex bridges and bridge construction machines. Unique professional stature within the bridge community. Extreme familiarity with software programs for structural analysis and failure simulation. Long-term familiarity with working with legal counsels.
We investigate failure. Bridges, bridge construction machines, and their interactions. We analyze design, construction, and operation flaws. We determine causes, identify remediation methods, assure proper remediation, educate legal counsels and arbitrators, and provide advice, testimony, or both.
Dr. Rosignoli’s books are distributed worldwide. Launched Bridges (1998, ASCE Press), Bridge Launching (2002, Thomas Telford) with its 2nd edition (2014, ICE Publishing), and the bestseller Bridge Construction Equipment (2013, ICE Publishing) are international references, cited in dozens of publications and bridge design standards. Chapter 6.37.40 Bridge Erection Machines in the UNESCO Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (2013, UNESCO) is also available worldwide.

I regard Marco Rosignoli not only as a worldwide-renowned expert, but in fact THE world authority, in the field of bridge launching.
Giuseppe Mancini, Prof.Ing., Dr.Ing., Professor of Structural Engineering, Professor of Bridge Design, Politecnico di Torino (Italy)
Marco Rosignoli's ability of merging field work with research and innovation makes his books and courses precious to the international bridge community.
Fritz Leonhardt, Prof.Em., Dr.Ing., Leonhardt, Andrä und Partners (Germany)
Your book "Launched Bridges" is the most complete presentation of this construction method. I congratulate you for this work.
Dr. Rosignoli’s 16 eManuals of modern bridge design and construction technology can be downloaded from this website (PDF version) or from Amazon (Kindle version). In a couple of years, bridge professionals have downloaded eManuals from well over 50 countries.

Marco Rosignoli has proposed new analysis and design methods, new technological solutions, innovative construction techniques... Marco Rosignoli is making the history of the incremental launching method.
Angela Hunter, Design Engineer, Kiewit Infrastructure Co. (USA)
This course was an excellent introduction to bridge launching. Did a great job of showing when it is cost-effective or applicable, and showing alternates. (Launched Bridges, 2-day course)
Timothy Hayes, Senior Project Manager, Walsh Construction (USA)
Great overview and resource to stimulate thought when selecting bridge type. (Launched Bridges, 2-day course)
Brian Hamill, PE, Chief Engineer, Hardesty & Hanover (USA)
Excellent seminar, Marco is an expert on the subject. (Mechanized Bridge Construction, 2-day course)
