QUANTITY SURVEY: RE
USING THE ABANDONED RAILWAY ELEMENTS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE BRIDGE81
On location, there wasan abundance of ‘railwaymaterial’ lying around notbeing used. Sleepers, railwaytracks, OHE’s, I-beams,etc, etc. I measured thesematerials with the intentionto build with them. The theme of the project is‘Architecture of Rapid Change& Scarce Resources’, sotherefore whatever materialswhich are readily avaliablemust be utilized in the project. There were thousands of materials all over the place onthe site, so not only is it wise toutilize them, they are alreadypart of the site’s aesthetic.868 concrete sleepers are usedthroughout this masterplan asfoundations for the containers and alsofor channelling clean and dirty water.1,384 wooden sleepers used on thebridge for
oor planks and railings. The sleepers are thinned - decreasingtheir weight. 1860 halfs are used.248 tracks are used on the bridgegrouped in four for columns. Totalling 1,984 metres.62 I Beams of are used on the bridge.I Beams at 9.5m (x 62)62 OHE columns are used on the bridgeas banister posts.One column is cut in 5 to make theposts.(5 x 62 = 310 parts)186 OHE beams are used on the bridgeas beams.
