Sustainable bridge infrastructure procurement

Abstract [en]

The lack of a flexible but systematic approach for integrating lifecycle aspects into bridge investment decisions is a major obstacle hindering the procurement of sustainable bridge infrastructures. This paper addresses this obstacle by introducing a practical holistic approach that agencies could use to procure the most "sustainable" (lifecycle-efficient) bridge through a fair design-build (D-B) tendering process, considering the main bridge lifecycle aspects: life-cycle cost, service life-span, aesthetic demands and environmental impacts.
