EXTON, PA, OCT 29, 2019 -- Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading global provider of comprehensive software and digital twin cloud services for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure, has announced the winners of the Year in Infrastructure 2019 Awards. The annual awards program honors the extraordinary work of Bentley users advancing design, construction, and operations of infrastructure throughout the world.
Twelve independent jury panels of industry experts selected 54 finalists from 571 nominations submitted by more than 440 user organizations in more than 60 countries.
Bentley Systems acknowledged 18 Year in Infrastructure Awards winners and nine Special Recognition Awards winners at a ceremony and gala on October 24 at the conclusion of the Year in Infrastructure 2019 Conference in Singapore.
Winners in the water/wastewater category are:
Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants
Jacobs Engineering Group and Singapore’s National Water Agency, PUB
Tuas Water Reclamation Plant
The project team used ProjectWise as the foundation for the CDE, creating a single source of truth among the globally dispersed team. Using OpenPlant, OPPID, and AECOsim ensured design consistency and improved multi-discipline coordination to save considerable design time. The applications’ automated material extraction directly from the 3D models reduced time for quantity takeoffs. LumenRT provided a visual understanding for prospective tenderers through flythrough and virtual construction sequencing. The fully federated 3D information model enables instant access to the plant’s data delivering a digital twin during construction and handover to the client.
Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Networks
Balfour Beatty, Morgan Sindall, BAM Nuttall Joint Venture
Thames Tideway Tunnel
London, United Kingdom
The project team established an open, connected data environment (CDE) using ProjectWise while the digital twin facilitated construction management and stakeholder buy-in. The CDE helped accommodated different file formats, eliminating delays and onsite rework by digitally identifying issues prior to construction. LumenRT helped facilitate digital maintenance planning to reduce ad-hoc model navigation, saving GBP 56,000 over a six-month period. Linking the SYNCHRO model with the digital twin visually identified clashes in a VR environment to optimize construction sequencing, saving thousands in costs.
Detailed descriptions of all nominated projects are in the print and digital versions of Bentley’s 2019 Infrastructure Yearbook, which will be published in early 2020. To review the past editions of this publication, access Bentley’s Infrastructure Yearbooks.
