Two Qatari projects make it to Bentley's infrastructure awards list

PENNSYLVANIA, 26 days ago

Two Qatar-based projects have emerged as the finalists in 2021 Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure constituted by The Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the infrastructure engineering software company. 
Al Thumama Stadium (in the Buildings and Campuses category) and Rosewood Doha (Structural Engineering) -  both projects of Qatari architectural group Arab Engineering Bureau - are the only projects to make it to the final list from the Gulf region.
The annual awards programme honours the extraordinary work of Bentley software users advancing infrastructure design, construction, and operations throughout the world. 
Sixteen independent jury panels selected the 57 finalists from nearly 300 nominations submitted by more than 230 organizations from 45 countries encompassing 19 categories.
According to Bentley, the winners of the student Future Infrastructure Star Challenge will be announced soon. The challenge provided students from around the world a platform to develop a concept or an idea of how they can change the world with infrastructure. 
Five independent jury panels of Bentley experts selected the top 10 finalists from 144 project submissions from 61 countries representing different infrastructure domains. Winners will be selected by a panel of Bentley and external expert judges. 
New this year, all winners will be revealed during keynote presentations on December 2 as part of the Year in Infrastructure. This series of virtual event runs from November 1 through December 2021.
