Bentley Systems CEO Greg Bentley said, “Our conference this year has been filled with insightful presentations and productive dialogue about BIM advancements. The effective strategies behind these advancements are helping infrastructure organizations achieve better performing assets through increased depth of information modeling and better performing projects through increased breadth of information mobility. Last night, during our 2014 Be Inspired Awards ceremony, we celebrated extraordinary examples of these BIM advancements at work in the delivery and operations of inspiring buildings, roads, utilities, and more. I thank and congratulate this year’s Be Inspired Awards winners, along with all of our nominees, for their valuable contributions to sustaining infrastructure and improving quality of life around the world.”
