Rail & Bridge Engineering and UAV/Drone Bridge Inspections
ARE is a rail & bridge engineering firm with offices in Hampton, NH, Portland, ME, Irvine, CA and Burnsville, MN. From these locations, our team inspects and manages over 18,000 bridge spans nationwide in 42 States. ARE’s primary scope is working with railroads to assist in modernizing their rail and bridge asset management through the use of technology, UAV/Drones, GIS, LiDAR, Software and Databases.
For most of our railroad clients, ARE inspects and load rate all their bridges, manages their BMP’s and performs design for repairs, upgrades or replacements. We also assist in contractor bid document preparation, capital planning and design/build projects. For a number of our shortline clients, ARE acts as their in-house bridge engineer, augmenting existing engineering and communications with the FRA.
