In Japan, there are concerns about the increasing shortage of labor in the infrastructure field, which is impacting the ability to take measures to mitigate aging infrastructure.

The company will launch a digital solution that supports the entire infrastructure lifecycle, spanning project management, design, construction, and maintenance. FUKUI COMPUTER will also launch TREND ROAD Designer for road design, a new 3D application that will leverage Bentley’s OpenRoads Designer, an industry standard for road concept, design, construction, and operations.
By entering into this strategic partnership, FUKUI COMPUTER will provide solutions for digital transformation (DX) in the infrastructure field promoted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), leveraging Bentley’s cutting-edge digital technology. The partnership aims to contribute to the improvement of productivity in the construction industry by introducing and utilizing 3D and digital twin solutions in the design, construction, and maintenance management sectors under the i-Construction and BIM/CIM strategy promoted by MLIT.
Carsten Gerke, senior vice president of strategic channels with Bentley Systems, said, “Collaborating with FUKUI COMPUTER benefits all parties. End users will benefit from cutting-edge, world-class digital technology and trusted local expertise. Bentley will address the demanding Japanese infrastructure market and i-Construction regulations through the market leader in Japan, while FUKUI COMPUTER will provide the most innovative digital twin solutions to dramatically improve the construction industry in Japan.”
