That's just Capital!
The Bentley Infrastructure conference was held in London at the beginning of this month - a gathering of major users of Bentley's comprehensive infrastructure modelling tools, from all corners of the globe - with particular and growing emphasis from Far Eastern countries like China and India, where some very impressive projects are in hand. Faced with the scope and scale of developments in some countries, it was particularly pleasing to hear Greg Bentley, in his keynore speech, nominating London as the infrastructure capital of the world!
You only just have to look out of the window, he said, where you can count over 400 skyscrapers raising some very impressive buildings, and in one of the most complex and difficult cities to work in we have both Crossrail and The Thames Tideway Tunnel under construction, and plans for HS2 well advanced to expand the London success story northwards. But most importantlo, he said, it was our handling of BIM, with support from the Government, that was leading the world. Projects that Bentley are involved in worldwide always appear to have a BIM expert to hand, having earned their spurs on Crossrail or one of the other major UK BIM projects. Great Britain, he said, appears to be building its Empire again, but with this time with expertise!
