Ray Howard's insight:

First the "Walkie Talkie" was blamed for reflecting beams of light so intense it could melt cars...now two years later it's being blamed for pushing people over in the street. This is one tough Building!

Fundamentally, Bentley provides software and services to engineers, designers and architects with the aim of helping them save time, effort and money while designing, constructing and operating infrastructure.
Ray Howard's insight:

"BIM is not a software product or solution, nor is it limited to just design and construction. BIM is far more about people and process, than software systems." Construction World interviewed Bentley's own Steve Cockerell on our achievements in the Rail industry and the evolution of BIM.

Ray Howard's insight:

Washington D.C. could sink more than 6" within the next 100 yrs and may have been built on top of a Prehistoric Sheet of Ice. We've spent a lot of money to build here and even more in recent years completing much needed rehab projects. I'd like to see the plan for saving this historic city.
