Marco Rosignoli, DrIng, PE


In 40+ years of professional activity, Dr. Rosignoli has been working in 24 countries on 4 continents on the design, design review, construction, and forensic engineering of complex bridges and bridge construction machines. His experience encompasses pre- and post-award design, construction, emergency response to failure, failure investigation, structural forensics, and expert advice. His assignments include 17 cable-supported bridges, 33 launched bridges, 11 balanced cantilever bridges, 4.9km of bridges cast span-by-span with movable scaffolding systems, 24.8km of high-speed railway spans, and 72.8km of precast segmental bridges.
