Bentley Systems has announced the winners of its 2014 Be Inspired Awards, including a number from Australasia. The awards honour the extraordinary work of Bentley users improving the world’s infrastructure. They were presented at a ceremony during The Year in Infrastructure 2014 Conference, held 4-6 November in London.
During the awards ceremony, 18 Be Inspired Awards winners and seven Be Inspired Special Recognition Awards winners were acknowledged. In addition, this year’s recipient of the Bentley Educator of the Year award, Artur Krawczyk, Ph.D., a lecturer at AGH University of Science and Technology, Kraków, Poland, was acknowledged.
Nine independent panels of jurors, comprising distinguished industry experts, selected the Be Inspired Awards winners from 54 project finalists. These finalists had been previously chosen from submissions by organisations in 49 countries.
Be Inspired Special Recognition Awards winners in South East Asia Pacific include;

Candidates for Bentley’s Be Inspired Special Recognition Awards were selected by the jurors from the top finalist projects as well as other exemplary nominations. This selection was based on the projects’ uniquely innovative and visionary achievements that transcend the narrower focus of the standing Be Inspired Awards categories. The nominees were then reviewed by a panel of Bentley executives, who evaluated them based on the criteria established for each award.
“Our conference this year has been filled with insightful presentations and productive dialogue about BIM advancements,” said Bentley Systems CEO Greg Bentley. “The effective strategies behind these advancements are helping infrastructure organisations achieve better performing assets through increased depth of information modelling and better performing projects through increased breadth of information mobility.
“Last night, during our 2014 Be Inspired Awards ceremony, we celebrated extraordinary examples of these BIM advancements at work in the delivery and operations of inspiring buildings, roads, utilities, and more. I thank and congratulate this year’s Be Inspired Awards winners, along with all of our nominees, for their valuable contributions to sustaining infrastructure and improving quality of life around the world.”
