Different Structures

Following the completion of all visual inspections, a final report was prepared which summarized the findings and provided maintenance/repair recommendations for each bridge.

Associated Engineering created a five-year maintenance plan detailing the individual repairs for each bridge, including cost and priority.

Finally, a life-cycle cost analysis was carried out using the maintenance costs and estimated replacement cost per year of each structure.
