Bentley ProjectWise to get more ‘cloudy’ with Bentley Connect

I first encountered Bentley ProjectWise when writing a case study about its use by London-based DLG Architects in 1999, and the product has been in my peripheral vision almost ever since.

I attended the Construction Computing Awards dinner in central London last night, and saw a mixture of awards distributed across a cross-section of the shortlisted companies (post) represented in the room.
