Digital Construction Works provides digital automation, integration, and "twinning" services

Digital Construction Works provides digital automation, integration, and "twinning" services around a portfolio of fit-for-purpose software and cloud services, from Topcon, Bentley and other software vendors, to realize the breakthrough potential of constructioneering, for industrializing construction.

Digital Construction Works aims to embed its experts within constructors’ major project teams to advance and optimize constructioneering processes for delivering better design-build outcomes, it says.

Experiences gained by Digital Construction Works will help guide Bentley Systems and Topcon in prioritizing their constructioneering software development investments. Digital Construction Works is led by CEO Ted Lamboo, previously senior vice president of strategic partnerships for Bentley Systems, and COO Jason Hallett, formerly vice president of digital construction and business development for Topcon.   

"When we and Topcon recognized the opportunity for constructioneering to finally industrialize capital project delivery, we committed respectively to completing its software requirements," says Greg Bentley, CEO of Bentley Systems.

"Indeed, our new software capabilities make possible construction digital twins – converging digital context, digital components and digital chronology. What remains, in going digital for infrastructure construction, is for constructors’ people and processes to take advantage of the technology.
