Bentley Systems, Incorporated announced it has opened up its LEGION Simulator and OpenBuildings Station Designer software, including waiving new subscription fees through September, for facilities managers to incorporate pedestrian-simulation methodologies across their planning, design, and operations teams.   

With social distancing and crowd management at the forefront of global concerns, OpenBuildings Station Designer and LEGION Simulator software can help station owners, planning and design firms, and facilities operators to develop models, simulate crowd movement, analyze foot traffic, and optimize space utilization of infrastructure assets such as rail and metro stations, airports, retail and commercial complexes, hospitals, and stadiums, according to Bentley.

OpenBuildings Station Designer’s BIM environment provides 3D context for LEGION’s included pedestrian simulation to create an operational digital twin to improve safety, efficiency, and security, while mitigating risk.

“We are going through extraordinary times and change will be a constant reality in the months and years ahead. Bentley’s OpenBuildings Station Designer and LEGION Simulator enable planners, architects, engineers, and operators to apply digital twin approaches to solve today’s design and operation challenges more quickly, efficiently, and safely across rail and metro stations, airports, and other public buildings and amenities,” said Ken Adamson, vice president, design integration for Bentley.

“Atkins has collaborated successfully with LEGION for over 20 years, and we look forward to building upon our own thought leadership on COVID-19 and for the Transport Sector by applying LEGION’s simulations for social distancing in response to requests by our metro clients in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, and Saudi Arabia,” said Cameron MacDonald, technical director, operations advisory, Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group.
