Bentley Systems and Topcon join forces to advance cloud services for ‘constructioneering’
Topcon Positioning Group, a world leader in positioning instruments for survey and construction, and Bentley Systems, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, today announced their joint intentions to connect cloud services for constructioneering. During the keynote presentations, the companies’ CEOs presented new construction workflows designed to increase efficiency and productivity with enhanced integration between their respective cloud services.

Each company will bring to market cloud-based solution offerings, which include services of both and provide construction workflows not previously possible. Initially, Bentley Systems will offer its ProjectWise CONNECT Edition users seamless connectivity with MAGNET Enterprise, and Topcon will incorporate ContextCapture image processing for its mass data collection via unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
“Topcon and Bentley share a vision about the advancements we can achieve through what I call the continuous representation of reality,” said Ray O’Connor, president and CEO, Topcon Positioning Group. “We also share a commitment to rolling up our sleeves and working together to make possible tangible results and real benefits for our customers as we advance constructioneering. I believe that our strategic collaboration will continue to integrate surveying, engineering, and construction, improving outcomes for project delivery.”
Greg Bentley, CEO, Bentley Systems, said, “To date, surveying, engineering, and construction industries have separately advanced to 3D technologies. But unbelievably, until now, 3D models have been recreated—rather than reused—at each phase. It’s been exciting to work with Topcon to introduce constructioneering so that our engineering users can start from the reality-captured survey context and leverage and update their digital engineering models through the construction process. Our joint cloud service innovations for constructing and improving roadways, including as-built capture, are enabling the highest level of workflow automation. I believe that Topcon will continue to pioneer new positioning devices to take advantage of every emerging opportunity, and we are enthusiastic about working with them to advance constructioneering into the mainstream for infrastructure projects around the world.”
Compared to traditional workflows between design and construction in which data from survey and digital engineering models can be lost and inefficiently recreated, constructioneering empowers engineers to extend their role within both surveying and construction.
Cloud services first bring the construction site conditions to the engineers so their work starts with an accurate model of the current 3D context—as captured by Topcon UAS photogrammetry and laser scanners—and then processed into engineering-ready 3D reality meshes by Bentley’s ContextCapture software. Cloud services subsequently convey the engineers’ work directly to construction processes in the field. This automation process—achieved through the connection between Topcon MAGNET cloud service and Bentley’s ProjectWise CONNECT Edition cloud services—improves project delivery, with design performed in context, and the resulting digital engineering models feeding the 3D machine control that guides the construction machinery.
Topcon and Bentley expect to expand the constructioneering workflow to further applications for infrastructure services.

Westinghouse Receives Regulatory Approval for Analysis Methodologies20.10.2017 12:15 | Pressemelding
Westinghouse Electric Company today announced that it has received approval from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for two new important analysis methodologies that will be used to upgrade Westinghouse- and Combustion Engineering-based nuclear steam supply system (NSSS) safety analyses. The approvals granted are for the new FULL SPECTRUMTM Loss of Coolant Accident (FSLOCATM) methodology and the Performance Analysis and Design Model software code update, PAD5.
