The Going Digital Awards are an integral part of Bentley’s annual Year in Infrastructure Conference. The conference brings together infrastructure professionals and industry thought leaders from around the world to share best practices and learn about the latest advances in technology that will improve infrastructure project delivery and asset performance. Winners will be announced during the awards ceremony at the culmination of the conference.

Users of Bentley software are invited to nominate their projects in the Going Digital Awards program, no matter which phase the project is in – planning/conception, design, construction, or operations. The three finalists chosen for each awards category will get a global platform to present their projects before the judges, industry thought leaders, and media members.

Every project nominated for an award receives recognition across the global infrastructure community. Through the Going Digital Awards program, participants:

  • Gain global recognition by having their infrastructure projects profiled in Bentley’s Infrastructure Yearbook, which is distributed to media, government, and industry influencers around the world. All winning and finalist projects are also featured on bentley.com.
  • Enhance their competitive edge by demonstrating to existing and potential clients the value the participants add to projects through their digital innovations.
  • Receive coverage from global media and support from the Bentley team in marketing and promoting their respective projects to the media.

The 2021 Going Digital Awards will recognize outstanding achievements for infrastructure projects and assets in the following categories:

Additionally, 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 known as the Special Recognition Awards) including, but not limited to:

  • Advancements in Digital Twins for Project Delivery (Project Digital Twins) for a project using a digital twin to gain useful insights, such as understanding the impact of change and design alternatives or highlighting issues with the quality of project data, to collaborate with the extended project team more effectively or to model the performance of a project and its construction.
  • Advancements in Digital Twins for Asset Performance (Performance Digital Twins) for a project involving an operating infrastructure asset that uses a digital twin to gain useful insights to improve the performance in areas such as throughput, safety, compliance, or maintenance, to evaluate the relative impact of different operational strategies, to support training operational staff, or to support remote operations.
  • Advancements in Sustainability and Resilience for a project that has leveraged digital technology in the design or operations of an infrastructure asset to achieve better sustainability (lower carbon footprint, better use of renewables, reduced environmental impact), higher resilience (ability to withstand and recover from human-made or natural disasters, adaptability to changing conditions), or to deliver social benefits (includes health and safety and community benefit) or improved governance (facilitates and promotes transparency in reporting, compliance, codes of conduct, and risk management).
