E7 acquired by Bentley Systems

By

Brisbane-based construction delivery software specialist E7 has been acquired by infrastructure engineering software company Bentley Systems.

E7's software helps transform manual, field-based tasks into digital workflows, and is specifically designed for heavy civil construction.

E7 has been deployed on over 350 projects valued at more than $50 billion, including the $812 million Bruce Highway upgrade project. Project director Brad Thompson said “Managing a large project of this nature requires failsafe systems that ensure large volumes of information can be processed accurately and fast. The efficiency of E7 has saved our project time and money, as it minimises errors and maximises productivity.”

E7’s flexible daily cost capture methods will, the companies said, extend Bentley’s Synchro construction modelling, project management and reporting, task management, voice-based field data capture, and automation capabilities to create a comprehensive 4D construction digital twin solution.

“Visibility into field resource utilisation is key to project profitability,” said Bentley Systems vice president of project delivery Dustin Parkman.

“The addition of E7 to Bentley’s Synchro digital construction delivery solution complements our industry-leading 4D construction modelling with field-based resource management tools that are essential for heavy civil contractors. This new combination makes possible a truly comprehensive digital construction delivery solution for heavy civil contractors everywhere.”

E7 CEO Hugh Hofmeister and CTO Adrian Smith join Bentley as director of product management and director of product development, respectively.

“After more than 10 years of working, first as Envision and then as E7, to develop the leading field-based construction delivery solution for Australian and now global projects, Adrian and I and our colleagues are excited to be joining Bentley," said Hofmeister.

"There is already great alignment between E7 and Bentley’s Synchro team. Our shared vision will accelerate the adoption of 4D construction digital twins that will significantly benefit our users in driving more profitable and predictable project outcomes.”

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
