Founded in 1988, with the consortium of Freyssinet a company of Vinci group with Yapı Merkezi, is the leading company of Turkey, regarding to modern structure applications and manufacturing high-tech structure solution. Continuing the activities of Freyssinet in Turkey and contiguous countries, Freysaş provides the junction point of structure and technology as its vision.With the incomparable expertise and know-how on post tensioning applications, Freysaş works in areas covering bridges, cylindrical structures, large surface areas, seismic protection, and structure parts manufacturing. Thanks to its technical background which supports Freysaş in the contemporary conditions where design is as much important as function, Freysaş has the ability to provide high-tech solutions for imaginative structures. As the frontier of stay cable bridge applications in Turkey, Freysaş built its first stay cable bridge project in 1997 at İzmir. Since then, Freysaş built many more projects both in Turkey and contiguous countries, becoming the one leading subsidiaries of owner companies. Simultaneously, the Metro crossing bridge over the Golden Horn was completed in 2013. The Golden Metro Crossing Bridge was built with the know-how of Freysaş, supported with its technological background and completed in a very short time period. The Liakhvi Viaduct in Georgia was completed in 2012. With its length over 850 meters it covers a large area beneath, including a railroad, a highway and a river, it would have caused a serious logistics problem if it wasn’t build with launching technology of Freysaş. With this technology, except the duration in which the columns were built, all the activity beneath was not interrupted. This method, with the capacity of 40 meters will be the most popular bridge construction method in Turkey very soon.

larsa_logo_2 LARSA 4D BRIDGE software developed by New York-based LARSA has become the standard for bridge design and construction analysis at leading U.S. firms during the past decade. LARSA 4D analysis and design software, which addresses the specialized needs of cable-stayed, curved-girder, segmental, suspension, and other bridge forms, provides advantages in process efficiency and quality which saves time and delivers value. At the core of LARSA 4D is a staged construction analysis, which models changes to a structure over time using construction activities and time-dependent material effects, such as creep, shrinkage, and relaxation. Additionally, following our mission to lead innovation in 3D finite element analysis software, LARSA 4D’s new Steel Bridge Module allows our users to optimize design for safer bridges by saving time and reducing cost through the use of a single software that combines refined analysis and detailed code check. In LARSA 4D innovation in engineering software pertains not only to analysis and design, but also to client support. To accommodate the unique and changing needs of today’s bridge engineers, LARSA 4D’s “Features on Demand” tool allows LARSA’s support team to deliver custom features and updates quickly in response to our clients’ technical needs.
