New Civil Technology Helps Departments of Transportation and Consultants Better Sustain Transportation Infrastructure
EXTON, Pa. – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for the infrastructure that sustains our world, today announced the immediate availability of InRoads Suite V8i (SELECTseries 1) and GEOPAK Civil Engineering Suite V8i (SELECTseries 1). The new releases include innovative 3D information modeling tools for resurfacing, restoration, and rehabilitation, which are provided by Bentley’s patented Roadway Designer 3D parametric modeling capabilities. The new tools enable transportation designers to more quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively respond to road and bridge projects, including those funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). In addition, they are especially suited for the newest construction technologies, including automated machine guidance – providing the opportunity for even greater workflow efficiencies.
Ron Gant, Bentley global marketing director, commented, “The updates to these civil design tools address the total design-build-operate lifecycle and further expand the already broad capabilities of Bentley’s solutions and products for sustaining transportation infrastructure. Bentley’s civil engineering software enables project teams to reuse design data during construction and operations, avoiding rework and reducing costs. At the same time, it allows them to work more efficiently and effectively in collaborative workflows – increasing quality and enhancing profitability – while being more ecologically aware in their design and construction work. Ultimately, this leads to the delivery of intelligent infrastructure that is better performing and more sustainable.”
Additional software enhancements in InRoads V8i (SELECTseries 1) and GEOPAK V8i (SELECTseries 1) incorporate innovative data acquisition, geometry, visualization, drafting and drawing production, context-sensitive interface adjustments, and the full capabilities of Bentley Map for an empowering, all-encompassing transportation solution. Enhancements also provide for the creation of Bentley i-models – a container for open infrastructure information exchange – and for the incorporation of i-model mark-ups to complete the bi-directional feedback loop and deliver comprehensive workflow optimization, for on-time and on-budget project delivery.
