Bentley reveals 2022 digital award winners

Construction technology firm Bentley systems announced the winners of its 2022 Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure.

The Ferrovial team picks up the Bentley award in the Bridges and Tunnels category, for its IH35 Nex Central Station project in Texas, US

At an awards ceremony in London, contractors, engineering consultants, airport authorities, government agencies lifted awards across 12 infrastructure-based categories, including Bridges and Tunnels, Construction, Rail and Transit and Roads and Highways.

On day one of the two-day event, delegates at the event had joined the independent jurors to see the final presentations from three finalists in each category, before the judging panels made their final decisions on the winners.

In his pre-awards address, Bentley Systems’ CEO Greg Bentley, said, “Many of you have heard from our finalists over the last couple of years…that their projects could proceed, while their engineers couldn’t go to the site…and you might say some of that is credit to what we call digital twin.

“We hope that momentum can be sustained and we think it can be, because there is a new impetus, which is that infrastructure engineers are as busy as they can be and the rest of us are depending on them.”

The following evening, the winners of the Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure were announced.
