The finalists of the “Year in Infrastructure” award

Bentley Systems has announced the finalist projects for the award of the best innovations in the use of software solutions in infrastructure management. There are 57 finalists, coming from 420 nominations worldwide for this 2018 event.

The numbers are cold but they reflect why the previous year was in Singapore, the headquarters with which it will be interspersed with London in the coming years. Not for less, 33 projects come from the Far East, 2 from the Middle East, 6 from Australia, 11 from Europe, 5 from America. It is inevitable to recognize the aggressiveness of the geo-engineering industry of the emerging Asian powers in the adoption of technologies, especially if we move beyond what was considered as simple CAD and modeling, towards the management of the life cycle of projects. , industrial and environmental engineering; aspect towards which BIM is promising.
