At its annual Year in Infrastructure conference on 12 October, Bentley Systems awarded 12 companies for their innovative infrastructure solutions 

The event was held at the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore. The finalists, who came from a range of countries around the world, showcased their products and solutions to the audience. 

A panel consisting of jury members picked the winner from 12 different sectors: bridges and tunnels, construction, enterprise engineering, facilities, campus and cities, process and power generation, rail and transport, roads and highways, structural engineering, subsurface modelling and analysis, surveying and monitoring, transmission & distribution, and finally, water and wastewater. 

Some impressive winners were: Atkins for their road and highway project in South Africa, Laing O’Rourke for their level crossing removal project in Australia, and Project Controls Cubed LLC for their water treatment project in the USA.

The company’s CEO, Greg Bentley, highlighted how infrastructure organisations are overcoming the engineering resource capacity gap through infrastructure intelligence strategies. When asked to quantify the engineering hours saved through digital advancements, the Going Digital Awards finalists reported significant median savings of 18%.

He also highlighted multiple infrastructure intelligence strategies that organisations are using to further compound the value of their data, including reusing digital components, integrating subsurface modelling, and incorporating, into evergreen digital twins, operational data from IoT sensors, drones, and even crowdsourcing. He explained how Going Digital Awards finalists and organisations in Singapore are accelerating their infrastructure intelligence through the use of AI.

The finalists used the following Bentley software: iTwin Platform, Bentley Infrastructure Cloud, ProjectWise, SYNCHRO, and AssetWise.
