Formerly known as the Year in Infrastructure Awards, the program recognizes infrastructure projects for digital innovations that improve delivery and/or asset performance. Independent juries of industry experts judge the entries, according to Bentley. The deadline for nominations is May 21, 2021.
The 2021 Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure is part of Bentley’s annual Year in Infrastructure Conference, which was held virtually last fall due to the pandemic. Users of Bentley software are invited to nominate their projects, which may be in any stage—from planning/conception to design to construction to operations.
The awards categories are: rail and transit; bridges; buildings and campuses; digital cities; digital construction; geotechnical engineering; land and site development; manufacturing; mining and offshore engineering; power generation; project delivery information management; reality modeling; roads and highways; road and rail asset performance; structural engineering; utilities and communications; utilities and industrial asset performance; water and wastewater treatment plants; and water, wastewater and stormwater networks.
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 called the Special Recognition Awards, the company said. These include:
• Advancements in digital twins for project delivery (project digital twins). • Advancements in digital twins for asset performance (performance digital twins). • Advancements in sustainability and resilience.
Bentley provides more program details on its website as well a short video about the nomination process.
