Bentley Systems this week announced the winners of the 2015 Be Inspired Awards, honoring the extraordinary work of Bentley users improving the world’s infrastructure. 18 Be Inspired Awards winners and five Be Inspired Special Recognition Awards winners were acknowledged.

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.

Bentley Systems CEO Greg Bentley said, “While our goal is advancing infrastructure, we can only accomplish it through the vision, talent, and dedication of the architects, engineers, constructors, and operations professionals who creatively apply our technology in pursuit of effective strategies for achieving new levels of project and/or infrastructure asset performance. I applaud all of the project nominees in this year’s awards program for their contributions to improving quality of life around the globe.”
