SPS PART OF WINNING FORMULA FOR FLOOD PROTECTION
1 May 2015 - IE has been working with Florida based Flood Panel, LLC to develop a flood protection product for small businesses hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy for the New York City Economic Development Corporation. The SPS flood barrier was selected from 200 applicants for the city’s $30 million federally-funded RISE: NYC competition to find the world’s most promising resiliency technologies to prepare businesses for future storms, sea level rise and other effects of climate change.
Flood Panel designed a new and innovative flood barrier system that incorporates SPS to provide a robust barrier against water infiltration that can withstand hydrostatic pressure, waves and the impact of floating debris. The modular SPS Flood Panels are thin and lightweight for easy storage, simple installation, and efficient deployment by businesses before a storm event.
IE’s CEO David Glover commented on the award, “It is a well deserved win for Flood Panel and all those involved in the bid. This is an ideal application for SPS and offers peace of mind to those who need to safeguard their premises.”
SPS Bridge Deck receives prestigious Ulrich Finsterwalder Engineering Award
Intelligent Engineering (IE) was delighted to receive an award at the prestigious Ulrich Finsterwalder Engineering Awards 2015 for its Mettlach Bridge project on Friday 30 January.

The Mettlach suspension bridge, originally constructed in 1951 over the Saar, had a concrete deck which was badly damaged and the suspension cables had been weakened. Weight restrictions were in force and a solution that offered minimal disruption was required. The bridge is the main link to the town centre and vital to the town’s tourist industry.
Studio City
Intelligent Engineering is pleased to report the award of a new project using SPS Terraces in a unique theatre-sporting-gaming venue for a Studio City gaming resort located in Cotai, Macau. The entertainment studio portion of the project, as designed by HKS Architects and Buro Happold Engineers, takes advantage of the lightweight SPS Terraces to make the cantilevered second tier feasible. The venue incorporates seating for 6,000 spectators and is reconfigurable to suit the needs of different events including the ability to remove and reinstall seating. Delivery of the SPS Terracing is planned for Q4 2014.
