BIM application in bridge engineering is becoming more and more requested. However, many solutions do currently not yet address the special needs of bridge construction. The paper explains the relevant features of the new approach, developing the bridge structure for detailing and analysis purposes in one parametrical model by using appropriate mathematical prescriptions. Specific characteristic of this solution is the combination of an intelligent database and a user interface tailored for engineers.
