Infrastructure engineering software specialist Bentley Systems is issuing a call for nominations for its 2021 Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure. The winners will be announced at the Year in Infrastructure 2021 Conference.
Formerly known as the Year in Infrastructure Awards, this global awards program is judged by independent juries of industry experts. The awards recognise infrastructure projects for digital innovations that improve project delivery and/or asset performance. The deadline for nominations is May 21, 2021.
The Going Digital Awards are an integral part of Bentley’s annual Year in Infrastructure Conference. The conference brings together infrastructure professionals and industry thought leaders from around the world to share best practices and learn about the latest advances in technology that will improve infrastructure project delivery and asset performance. Winners will be announced during the awards ceremony.
Users of Bentley software are invited to nominate their projects in the Going Digital Awards program, no matter which phase the project is in – planning/conception, design, construction, or operations. The three finalists chosen for each awards category will get a global platform to present their projects before the judges, industry thought leaders, and media members.
Every project nominated for an award receives recognition across the global infrastructure community. Through the Going Digital Awards program, participants can gain global recognition by having their infrastructure projects profiled in Bentley’s Infrastructure Yearbook, which is distributed to media, government, and industry influencers around the world.
Nominees can also boost their competitive edge by demonstrating to existing and potential clients the value the participants add to projects through their digital innovations. And firms will receive positive coverage from global media and support from the Bentley team in marketing and promoting their respective projects to the media.
The 2021 Going Digital Awards will recognise outstanding achievements for infrastructure projects and assets in a series of categories including: bridges; digital cities; digital construction; geotechnical engineering; land and site development; rail and transit; reality modelling; roads and highways; road and rail asset performance; structural engineering.
Additionally, projects that represent Bentley’s mission of advancing infrastructure but transcend the narrower focus of the individual category awards can be considered for Founders’ Awards (formerly known as the Special Recognition Awards). These include: advancements in digital twins for project delivery; advancements in digital twins for asset performance; advancements in sustainability and resilience.
