UBC Steel Bridge earned an impressive third-place finish at the recent 2017 CSCE-CISC Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition. Eight teams converged at Université Laval for the May competition, in a culmination of months of student-driven activity including the conception, design, and fabrication of a scale-model steel bridge, built to simulated client specifications. The competition included timed construction and load testing, and teams were evaluated on construction speed, lightness, stiffness, construction economy, structural cost, design aesthetics, and overall cost. The UBC team’s strong results included a first place finish in the design aesthetics category, and third place overall in the competition. Congratulations to UBC Steel Bridge on a solid performance!
