Bentley Systems unveils novel modelling application
Combining a variety of engineering drawing tools with project management processes, OpenRoads ConceptStation can aid in boosting design productivity, as well as identifying potential risks in road designs.

UK-based Bentley Systems has announced the launch of OpenRoads ConceptStation, a conceptual modelling application that enables highway engineer professionals to rapidly design conceptual roads and bridge models.

Mark Urban, senior vice president, design-build projects, HNTB Corporation, said: "OpenRoads ConceptStation allows HNTB to easily assemble existing condition data from different sources in the beginning of a project. From this base information, we are able to create multiple design alternatives for business development, as both an owner-representative or when working collaboratively with our partners.

"Using OpenRoads ConceptStation, we can identify high-cost items and issues and propose alternative technical concepts when appropriate for our clients. This conceptual design application helps us reduce costs while creating more optimal designs for our clients."

Combining a variety of engineering drawing tools with project management processes, OpenRoads ConceptStation can aid in boosting design productivity, as well as identifying potential risks.

Furthermore, the platform can reportedly minimise project development costs, and once a optimal design is decided upon, users can upload the model to OpenRoads and OpenBridge to streamline highway and bridge design.

Miller Crockart, vice president, global sales and marketing, traffic software, PTV Group, shared: "PTV Vissim is recognised in the US market as the industry-standard software for microscopic traffic simulation. We are continually working on evolving our solution to ensure that we anticipate market requirements.

He added: "By collaborating closely with Bentley on OpenRoads ConceptStation, customers of both companies benefit. Bentley and PTV Group now offer clients a smooth and convenient workflow process that integrates two of the leading global design and traffic engineering software platforms."
