“The Builterra OSIM Data Collection solution was critical to our success in managing the inspection for over 300 structures with all their photos and element condition notes. Exporting the report to the OSIM standard format from data collected using Cell phones and tablets in remote areas with no connectivity was also a huge benefit.”

Brief Summary

A natural inspection fit for the Builterra mobile and web based reporting system is Bridge and Culvert inspection work. As a geocentric solution with the ability to “pre-load” structure locations and existing bridge attribute data, Builterra provided an easy way to inspect the bridge elements and provide standard reporting.

Photos attached to the specific Element type means that time wasted sorting through countless photos on a phone, camera and uploading to a hard drive at the end of the day is completely eliminated. Working offline and sync’ing with the Builterra cloud when wifi is available is the simplest method of data collection for bridge and culvert condition assessments in remote areas.

Geotagged reports and photos means that each structure can be geographically shown in the Azure Map and selected using the map interface. Centralizing the data in the clous means that accessing every inspection for a selected structure can be done within a few seconds. Any annual or bi-annual inspections can be shown as independent records for the selected bridge.

Custom Meta reporting can result in enhanced reporting like Bridge Condition Inspection (BCI) ratings, cost of repairs and other summary reporting based on centralized database of all structures inspected.

Combining the Bridge and Culvert inspection programs for the municipal public owner using the same system used for actual repair and construction reporting is huge. Pre-construction, construction and all post-construction data for the structure is located digitall in one place and accesses via the map interface. Easy to find and get data for any structure or asset.

Builterra’s functionality has been expanded to include the Ontario Structural Inspection Manual (OSIM) for bridge and culvert inspections. With all necessary reports already included in the Builterra platform you can get started on your bridge inspections using the Builterra mobile app in no time!

Top Features used in this Industry

Past Bridge Data Inspections

Since bridge condition inspections are mostly existing structures, you can "pre-load" the previous year's bridge inspection data into Builterra using MS Excel

Bridges can be located in the mapping interface for easy selection and data review

Multipled inspections can be added to the same bridge location area showing all inspections and photos collected over the years

Geolocated Mobile Data Collection with Categorized Photos

The OSIM mobile form is a standard Builterra data collection from with configured pages and an element table for endless data collection.

As element data is collected, associated phots are also captured for the inspected element.

Offline data collection is also supported for remote locations.

OSIM Report Ready

The OSIM report is a by-product of the data driven database capture. 

Based on the standard reporting style that engineers come to expect, the report can be generated in real-time with no user interaction

A Word or PDF formatted document that looks exactly like the current OSIM report is the result of the data and photos collected.
