Best of Infrastructure 2023 – Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure

Geofumadas will be attending this event in Singapore on October 11 and 12, which will showcase the best of innovation in engineering, architecture and construction works.

Many efforts coincide this year when integrated management models seek to take advantage of the cloud, artificial intelligence, digital twins and, above all, geolocation. And while the numbers tend to be cold, it will surely be interesting to see these 36 finalists, which have been selected from nearly 300 nominations, which in turn represent the efforts of nearly 235 organizations proud of their projects in more than 50 countries.

In the words of Chris Bradshaw, “We are very excited to be back in Singapore to present the Going Digital Awards finalists in front of our users and those attending virtually, as well as invited press and analysts at the 2023 Year in event. Infrastructure and Going Digital Awards. These projects reflect how organizations have improved their workflows by adopting digital technologies to maximize efficiency and cost savings. I congratulate the finalists for advancing infrastructure intelligence by adopting Bentley Infrastructure Cloud, the iTwin platform and products, and Bentley Open Applications, and wish them success in their future endeavors.”
