Ian Best

Managing Director, Founder of MCS

Managing Director and founder of MCS - Established in parallel to "Bentley Systems Bahrain" to complement their efforts with resources specific to project services. In 1998, MCS relieved "Bentley Bahrain" of its primary roles and became the exclusive agent for Bentley Systems in Bahrain. Bentley continues to support MCS and the market with products and services.

Over the past 10 years MCS has grown to employ over 45 people, and has become one of the first companies of its kind in the region to establish and maintain ISO certification. (We are a 9001:2000 approved company with accreditation from British Standards Institute (BSI) for : Computer Aided Design Engineering, Project Management, Surveying with 3D Laser Equipment, and the Provision of IT Support) MCS has pioneered the use of 3D Laser Scanning and high end 3D CAD modelling services in the Middle East.

Besides mechanical simulations MCS also carries out plant surveys, and in particular Equipment and Piping surveys. All data is modelled in 3D so that the information can be reproduced in appropriate formats for different disciplines, e.g. Piping Isometrics, Plans and Sections. Additionally, through file translation we are able to reverse engineer data into physical form through technologies such as Stereo lithography and other forms of rapid prototyping and manufacturing.
