Topcon and Bentley to hold collaborative Constructioneering Academy in Brisbane
LIVERMORE, Calif., U.S./ CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, the Netherlands – April 2, 2018 – Topcon Positioning Group and Bentley Systems announce the second collaborative Constructioneering Academy initiative. The session is scheduled for April 12, 2018 in Brisbane, Australia.
The Constructioneering Academy is designed by Topcon and Bentley Institute to allow construction industry professionals to learn best practices for constructioneering, a process of managing and integrating survey, engineering, and construction data, to streamline construction workflows and improve project delivery.
“Coming off the heels of the success of our first Constructioneering Academy session in Livermore, California, we are very excited to continue the Academies that allow Topcon and Bentley personnel to interact directly with attendees to cater the experience to their interests and needs,” said Ron Oberlander, senior director of Topcon Professional Services. “Our goals include educating attendees on how to optimize digital insights to improve project outcomes, and streamline asset lifecycle workflows by integrating surveying, engineering and construction data — ultimately, they will transform design-build performance, enhance project efficiency and reduce costs.”
Alan Lamont, vice president of Advancement Academies for Bentley adds, “This session in Brisbane uniquely offers attendees a full end-to-end project workflow, integrating Bentley’s constructioneering design offering and hands-on experience with Topcon’s equipment. The Constructioneering Academy, in conjunction with Topcon, is one of a series of global Digital Advancement Academies offered by Bentley Institute, establishing collaborative environments which facilitate the adoption of best practices and standards across infrastructure industries.”
