Don’t’ miss what’s new in Civil Design at the CONNECTION Event Abu Dhabi (May 10, 2016)

Attend the CONNECTION Event Abu Dhabi and join us in Civil Design Seminar to gain insight into civil projects within the context of traditional engineering workflows and 3D models. Make better decisions throughout the project lifecycle – from conceptual to detailed design to construction and maintenance. Learn how Bentley’s civil design applications provide construction-driven engineering tools to help accelerate design, enhance mobility, and improve collaboration across projects, regions, and stakeholders.

Bentley technical experts, Francois Valois and Ian Joyce will reveal how to assemble context data rapidly from a variety of sources such as point clouds, 3D reality meshes, terrain data, images, and GIS information. See how to use OpenRoads ConceptStation to simplify 3D modeling with easy to use engineering sketching tools to quickly conceptualize roads and bridges infrastructure.

Francois Valois, Director of Product Management – Civil, Bentley Systems

Francois is an engineer and an MBA who joined Bentley in 2004 and is responsible for the civil and reality modeling product lines. Before joining Bentley Systems, Francois Valois was working at ESRI in Redlands, CA as part of the Geometry, Topology and Editing team as a Product Engineer responsible for designing, testing and documenting functionality related to the geometry and topology sub-systems.

Ian Joyce, Senior Application Engineer - Transportation, Bentley Systems

Ian is based in the UK and has varied experience in a wide range of industries. Originally an archaeological draughtsman recording Roman and Anglo Saxon remains in Warwickshire, Ian moved into the electronic world of CAD using MicroStation and InRoads to model landfill sites in the 90s. An earlier spell with a geotechnical contractor gave Ian the experience necessary to become a gINT expert. Today Ian is a Senior Application Engineer working in transportation.


Bentley’s 2016 CONNECTION Event in Abu Dhabi brings you the opportunity to hear Bentley’s technical experts discuss the newest capabilities, latest innovations, and common data environments for building, civil, structural, and water products to help you optimize design, modeling, analysis, information-sharing and communications
