Infrastructure Showcase: 2016 Bentley Infrastructure 500 Top Owners Ranking

Todd Danielson on February 16, 2017 - in Articles, Featured, Showcase

Normally in an Infrastructure Showcase, we profile unique, fascinating and/or award-winning projects that had a major impact on design and engineering. For this issue, we wanted to highlight an endeavor that goes beyond attractive photos and defines just how important infrastructure is worldwide.

The Bentley Infrastructure 500 annually ranks the top owners of infrastructure from public and private sectors to help compare investment levels across types of infrastructure, world regions and organizations. Bentley Systems compiles this list “to help global constituents appreciate and explore the magnitude of investment in infrastructure and the potential to continually increase the return on that investment.” The Bentley Infrastructure 500’s value, at more than $15.5 trillion, is 84 percent of the 2016 nominal GDP estimate of the United States ($18.5 trillion) and close to the combined 2016 GDPs of China and Japan.

The Bentley Infrastructure 500 ranks owners according to their reported tangible fixed assets (or other comparable non-current physical assets such as buildings or fixed structures, land and machinery).
