Bentley Systems Announces Availability of OpenSite Designer
EXTON, Pa., May 13, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Uniquely integrates reality modeling, optimization, and automated 
deliverables to accelerate digital twin advancements for civil site designers 

Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading global provider of comprehensive 
software and digital twins services for advancing the design, construction, and 
operations of infrastructure, today announced the availability of OpenSite 
Designer, its integrated application for civil site and land development 
workflows across conceptual, preliminary, and detailed design phases. OpenSite 
Designer advances BIM through comprehensive 3D site design, spanning reality 
modeling of site conditions from drone imagery and scans, geotechnical 
analysis, terrain modeling, site layout and grading optimization, stormwater 
drainage modeling and analysis, underground utilities modeling, detailed 
drawing production, and enlivened visualizations.

OpenSite Designer enables rapid and iterative conceptual design, leveraging 
contextual information obtained through point clouds, reality meshes, GIS, and 
other sources to enhance understanding of existing site conditions. 
Interoperating with PLAXIS and SoilVision, Bentley's geotechnical engineering 
solutions, site plans can be enhanced with new information about the active 
properties of soil including bearing capacity, stresses, and displacement. 

With OpenSite Designer, users can create intelligent 3D models containing site 
information, terrain data, parking lots, building pads, driveways, sidewalks, 
parcel layout, and related site features. During preliminary design, the site 
engineer can complete and subjectively improve the layout while relying on 
further automated optimizations, which respond to the engineering changes. To 
complete the project's digital workflows, OpenSite Designer fully supports the 
site engineer's detailed design including the production of all required 
project deliverables. 

For many site engineers, OpenSite Designer will advance civil site design from 
traditional 2D plans and profiles to a 3D modeling environment, assuring more 
efficient analysis of hydraulics, geotechnical, geospatial, and earthworks. 
Incorporating the analytics optimization of Bentley's SITEOPS technology, 
OpenSite Designer is the successor to the site design capabilities of Bentley's 
PowerCivil, topoGraph, GEOPAK Site, InRoads Site, and MXSite. 

Dustin Parkman, vice president, civil infrastructure design integration for 
Bentley Systems, said, "The collaborative nature of digital workflows 
converging analysis and simulation with design and modeling is exemplified in 
our new OpenSite Designer. We're excited that for the first time there is a 
complete solution for site design and land development to accelerate site 
engineers going digital!" 

Michael Semeraro, Jr., PE, PP, managing principal, EVP, Langan International, 
said, "Langan is always looking for opportunities to differentiate ourselves 
from competitors with technical excellence and expertise. We have depended on 
SITEOPS for site optimization, earthwork analysis, and cost identification in 
our planning phase. We now look forward to using OpenSite Designer to also 
produce our detailed designs and documentation."

Greg Bentley, CEO of Bentley Systems, said, "Interestingly, after three decades 
of leadership in civil engineering software scope advancement, the culmination 
is OpenSite Designer – a very accessible and widely-needed application which 
combines complete fitness for purpose with unprecedented ease of use and 
adoption. In effect, it brings to bear what we consider to be the indispensable 
characteristics of infrastructure digital twins – reality from imagery, 
veracity from simulation and optimization, and fidelity to design intent across 
revisions. Both site engineers' work satisfaction, and their site designs, will 
be vastly enhanced by the breakthroughs in OpenSite Designer. Try it!"
