The Bentley Year in Infrastructure Conference is an annual global gathering of leading executives in the world of infrastructure design, construction, and operations. Strategic Partners for this year’s event include Microsoft, Siemens and Topcon.
On Thursday, October 18, O’Connor will join a discussion with other industry leaders on the Bentley Strategic Partners Panel focused on the future of infrastructure, and new ways to transform the way it is designed, built, and maintained for better efficiency and precision.
Also on Thursday, Hermanski’s discussion will detail how to implement constructioneering concepts to improve inspection and maintenance with existing infrastructure. He said, “By combining surveying, engineering, and construction repair workflows, we can achieve greater efficiencies in inspection, maintaining, as well as extending the life of infrastructure with higher quality.”
Hallett’s Thursday session will focus on surveying, reality modeling and construction automation. “We will discuss the tools and the workflows available today, and how developments of the future will help people and machines navigate automation,” Hallett said.
On Wednesday, October 17, Oberlander will lead a discussion detailing the Topcon and Bentley joint Constructioneering Academy initiative designed to allow construction industry professionals to learn best practices in constructioneering.
“Attendees will hear how the Bentley and Topcon collaboration is automating the digital construction process through surveying, engineering design, constructible model development, and as-built data collection within a connected data environment to improve construction execution and reduce project costs,” said Oberlander.
Additionally, Oberlander will present during a special Constructioneering Academy session on Monday, October 15, which is part of the full day agenda featuring select Bentley Academy programs.
