Why BIM?

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.

Meeting Public BIM Standards with Vectorworks

3+1 Architects were faced with a unique challenge in following strict standards to design the Tallinn School of Music and Ballet. From the technical aspects to meet the school’s requirements, to the data documentation to meet Estonia’s public building mandates, the firm used Vectorworks to keep information organized in one place.
