THE AYALA BRIDGE
The historic Ayala Bridge is the first steel bridge in the Philippines that was completed in the 1930s. It was closed to the public in 2015 to undergo major rehabilitation and repairs to improve its structural integrity to withstand future earthquakes.
Digiscript was awarded the contract to conduct the as-built of the bridge that would serve as critical baseline data required by the structural engineers and designers in preparation for its rehabilitation. Digiscript utilized the Leica C10 Scanstation to capture the approaches, steel trusses / plates, beams, frames, roadway, bridge underside, and piers. There were no road closures required since the survey team could safely capture all required dimensional information from the sidewalk or center island. The actual survey was completed in about 8 days and a complete set of 2D As-built drawings were provided as well as a BIM (Building Information Model).
