The article presents the selection process of a static system and optimization for steel bridge span. The issue was addressed as an entry to a BRICO 2017 contests in designing steel bridges. The proposed solutions were checked in terms of their bearing capacity, technological assembly and economics. General guidelines for geometry selection were described. The designed construction was produced and tested under load to determine the deflection in both vertical and horizontal plane. Furthermore, the article details the joints and technological issues met during the design process. Theoretical calculations and actual measurements on a real life model were compared. The process of structural design of civil engineering structures is a complicated, time consuming multilayered issue. The key to a good design lies in a compromise between esthetics, functionality, capacity exhaustion and technical possibilities.
