Year in Infrastructure Conference 2017

Bentley's Year in Infrastructure is globally recognized as the leading forum for identifying trends, sharing ideas, and adopting technologies to address the current priorities and opportunities impacting the infrastructure industry.

Here’s a look at some of the key speakers and presenters.

The Speakers

Murray Lodge

Senior Vice President and General Manager, Construction

Building New Infrastructure with Constructioneering

Building new infrastructure with constructioneering combines surveying, engineering, and construction workflows to provide new efficiencies in creating affordable, smart, and sustainable infrastructure globally. The constructioneering concept allows users to start from a reality-captured survey context and leverage and update their digital engineering models throughout the construction process in real time, at any time.

Compared to traditional workflows between design and construction, in which digital engineering data from survey, office, and machines can be lost and inefficiently recreated, Topcon provides seamless integration for constructible models that offer real-time updates and data exchange between office, field, and machines for improved efficiency and cost reduction.

Ulrich Hermanski

Vice President, Construction, EMEA

Inspecting and Maintaining Existing Infrastructure with Constructioneering

Inspecting and maintaining existing infrastructure with constructioneering combines surveying, engineering, and construction repair workflows to provide new efficiencies in inspection, maintaining, and extending life extension of infrastructure globally. The concept allows users to start from a reality-captured survey context and leverage and update their digital engineering models and decide on improvements or management decisions throughout the construction process in real time.

Compared to traditional workflows between inspection, design, and maintenance, in which data from survey, office, and machines and digital engineering models are used, constructioneering brings safety, cost-effectiveness, and repair speed. It provides seamless integration for constructible models that offer real-time updates and data exchange for improved efficiency.

Jason Hallett

Vice President, Product Management

The Future: Survey Fusion, Reality Modeling, and Construction Automation

To deliver a complete preliminary survey, mapping professionals are required to use everything from traditional surveying equipment to mass data-capture solutions, along with applications capable of fusing captured data into a single reality mesh. This reality mesh serves as the foundation of design generation today, while continuously updated, reality meshes will serve as the turn-by-turn instructions for construction automation in the future. This session starts with the tools and workflows available today, and describes how future developments will help people and machines navigate from original ground to finished surface.
