FUKUI will leverage the Bentley iTwin platform to augment its own cloud-based data-sharing service.

FUKUI COMPUTER, a Japan-headquartered CAD vendor for the construction industry, has announced a strategic partnership with Bentley Systems.

FUKUI will leverage the Bentley iTwin platform to augment its own cloud-based data-sharing service with 3D/4D visualisation, simulation, and digital twin capabilities.

There are concerns in Japan about the increasing shortage of labor in the infrastructure field, which is impacting the ability to take measures to mitigate ageing infrastructure. This situation is further aggravated by the intensification and frequent occurrence of natural disasters.

The firm hopes that this integration will accelerate the adoption of digital technologies and bring multiple benefits to the wider Japanese construction industry.

FUKUI will also launch a new 3D software for road design that will leverage Bentley’s OpenRoads Designer.

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.”

Tadashi Sugita, president of FUKUI COMPUTER, commented: “The strategic partnership with Bentley Systems will allow us to introduce cutting-edge digital technology to the ICT field in the construction industry in Japan.

“As a software company being trusted by the construction companies who support the infrastructure in local communities, we will strive to contribute to society by providing useful products and valuable support services.”
