About

Over the last 30 years Geoff Freedman has provided, via the Forestry Commission, a consultancy service to private forestry, local authorities and major land owners – indeed anyone who owns rural bridges. ‘Geoff Freedman Rural Bridges’ is the latest name for this service. Bridges in the countryside differ from large urban bridges in many ways.

  • Low Cost
  • Difficult Access
  • Realistic Loadings
  • Low Tech construction
  • Sustainability
  • Genius Loci
  • Environmental harmony

It is these demanding factors which require experience to ensure the design is appropriate. ‘Rural Bridges’ has that experience and many endorsements to back it up.

‘Geoff Freedman Rural Bridges’ is a limited liability partnership between Geoff and Lana Freedman. We work as sole traders in conjunction with dedicated Associates who carry out CAD drawings and design checks. As it is mandatory under the Construction Design and Management Regulations for a client to ensure that a competent consultant is retained to work on his behalf, below is a CV which can be verified by his Professional bodies and the many published papers by Geoff Freedman and his bridges- some available on the internet.
