Bentley Systems Incorporated announced a series of seminars that describe how ENR Top 500 Design Firms ensure that complex engineering information is available to the right people at the right time, enabling project teams to work together as one.

The half-day "Work as One" seminars include technology presentations, guest speakers, demonstrations, and peer-to-peer discussions aimed at improving project quality, meeting aggressive project deadlines, and improving project communication and collaboration. Each seminar explains how top architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms, state departments of transportation (DOTs), and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPCs) firms are using Bentley's ProjectWise collaboration servers to enable their project teams, their information, and their tools to work as one.
