Recognized for Helping Drive Advanced Work Packaging’s Structure
and Designation as a Construction Industry Institute Best Practice

EXTON, Pa., U.S.A. – April 20, 2016 – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, today announced that Eric Crivella, Bentley plant construction executive and industry sales director, was presented with a Fiatech 2015 Superior Technical Achievement Recognition (STAR)Award this month at the Celebration of Engineering & Technology Innovation gala in Austin, Texas. The STAR Award honors members whose leadership, commitment, participation, and personal dedication have helped advance the goals of Fiatech and benefited the capital projects industry at large. Crivella was recognized for his work on Fiatech’s Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) project.

Fiatech Executive Director Ray Topping said, “Eric Crivella has long advocated for and provided thought leadership in support of Advanced Work Packaging, beginning with the original advancements of WorkFace Planning. Recognizing a shortcoming in the practice of identifying and accessing the information resources needed to support AWP, he defined and was instrumental in launching a Fiatech AWP Information Mapping project (AIM) designed to overcome this constraint. Eric’s STAR Award is certainly well deserved for the leadership he provided on this crucially important work.”

Reg Hunter, senior program director, Fiatech, added, “Eric’s commitment to and active involvement in the advancement of work processes have been instrumental in driving not only the structure of AWP, but also the designation of AWP as a Construction Industry Institute (CII) best practice. He also has helped facilitate AWP’s accelerated reduction to actualpractice in the industry, where cost reductions of over 15 percent have been consistently demonstrated.”

Harry Vitelli, Bentley Systems senior vice president, construction and field, project delivery, said, “Eric’s colleagues at Bentley Systems congratulate and join in thanking him for his work with Fiatech. Advanced Work Packaging has tremendous merit and potential, and I believe the project delivery community is being very well served by Fiatech’s, and Eric’s, advocacy for Advanced Work Packaging and its benefits.”

Wayne A. Crew, general secretary, National Academy of Construction, said, “Eric was an early believer that a framework encompassing initial planning and continuing through detailed design and construction installation would provide the industry a step change in the overall execution of capital projects. His passion, commitment, and energy have moved AWP from being a concept to a proven best practice. For this important achievement, Eric greatly deserves being distinguished with a STAR Award.”

Crivella has extensive subject matter expertise in AWP and WorkFace Planning, BIM strategies, and construction automation solutions. Prior to joining Bentley Systems, he was director of business development and co-founder of Common Point, which Bentley acquired in May 2008. In addition to his role at Bentley, Crivella serves on the board of advisors at the CII and is co-chair of the CII AWP Community of Practice.
