Architectural design is not one-size-fits-all, so BIM workflows shouldn’t be, either. That’s why Vectorworks Architect, one of the industry’s top BIM software programs, is built around an architect’s design process. The design-oriented BIM focus of Architect allows you to conceptualize and edit your project, while generating drawings and schedule in real time. This added benefit lets you refine construction details without compromising your creative process or scope of work.
Bastian Weiland, partner at archis Architekten + Ingenieure GMBH, explains the efficiency and transparency offered by the BIM workflows in Vectorworks.
Nick Lawrence, pioneer of BIM strategy at A&Q Partnership, breaks down the firm’s method for working on large, multi-disciplinary BIM projects with Vectorworks software.
With the Holbrook School project, Flansburgh Architects experienced a turning point in their workflow where they could finally leverage BIM throughout the entire design process.
Idle Architecture is known for and take pride in tackling large projects — something that is traditionally not done with small firms, let alone executed successfully.
With Vectorworks, we can work consistently in one program — from the first stroke to the window detail.
Data rich information is generated automatically from our models. This allows us to concentrate on the design process, whilst Vectorworks manages the exchange of data between different software packages for us.
The ARP ArchitektenPartnerschaft office uses BIM extensively for various design tasks. In essence, they are successfully integrating practical BIM, which reduces risk in every step of the process.
Vectorworks BIM integrates easily with all members of the team, allowing us to easily coordinate with engineers, contractors, and even subcontractors.
Osar architects is seen as an icon in the healthcare sector, with hospitals, psychiatric institutions, and structured residential care centers as part of their portfolio. With projects of this scale, the inevitability these architects would use BIM led to Osar executing their projects in a more structured way.
By using BIM for the Scott Headquarters, IttenBrechbühl achieved precise designs based on improved collaboration among team members throughout the process.
KBNK Architects are masters of 2D drafting and planning who discovered Big BIM workflows by a client’s request. The project in question, a modeling of 12 apartment buildings at the SonninPark in Hamburg-St. Georg, shows just how intuitive collaborating with BIM can be.
