Monitoring of critical civil engineering infrastructures, and especially viaducts and bridges, has become a priority. Specific guidelines on risk classification and management, safety assessment and monitoring of existing bridges have been issued in Italy. Several laws and regulations have been issued on the same topic, emphasizing the crucial role of BIM-based procedures for the design and management of civil infrastructures. This study aims at examining the potential of an interoperable and upgradeable BIM platform supplemented by non-destructive survey data, such as Mobile Laser Scanner (MLS), Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and satellite-based information. The main goal of the work is to implement an infrastructure management platform that aims at reducing the limits associated to the separate observation of these assessments and to provide a more efficient way to store data regarding the status of bridges and viaducts, to the advantage of an integrated analysis. This work aims to develop an informative BIM platform of the investigated bridges, interoperable within a Geographic Information System (GIS) database. As on-site surveys are carried out, a preliminary multi-source database of information is created. Preliminary results have shown promising viability of the data management model for supporting asset managers in the various management phases.
