The inventor of the system, Bruce Mullaney, developed this technology from a system for making concrete slabs, whereby reinforcing steel could be clipped to the formwork, holding the formwork in place at the right height and distance.
Bruce found that this could similarly be applied to bridge building, such that all reinforcing and formwork could be assembled off-site and then transported to site where the concrete was then poured. This would make components easier to transport, quicker and safer to install, and reduce the need for bridge maintenance.
Logan and Ben Mullaney shared their father’s vision and in 2017 established InQuik Pty Ltd in Australia to commercialize this innovative technology and connect communities across Australia. The bridge system has been patented in over 88 countries worldwide.
And has received recognition both locally and overseas for its innovation, notably receiving the 2020 Australian Engineering Excellence Award (Canberra Division) from Engineers Australia, and the USA-based Association for Iron & Steel Technology’s (AIST) 2019 T.C. Graham Prize.
InQuik Inc. launched in the United States in 2022 and is excited to bring the innovative bridge construction solution to the USA.
InQuik is also actively pursuing global partners to introduce the InQuik system to the world, by licensing the international patents.
