Bentley Systems offers full access to LEGION Simulator and OpenBuildings Station Designer

Learning to live with COVID-19.

COVID-19 pandemic is still haunting the world. People are learning to live by arrangements that will improve their safety, efficiency, and security, especially in public places.
