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 organizations in 49 countries.

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.

The effective strategies behind these advancements are helping infrastructure organizations achieve better performing assets through increased depth of information modeling 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.
