Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. is pleased to announce that we received a 2013 Product Innovation Award (PIA) in the Industry Leadership category from Architectural Products magazine for our BIM Camp events, which help architects and designers learn the skills they need to adopt BIM workflows in their practices.
"We are pleased to receive this honor from Architectural Products," said Steve Alden, AIA, US sales and marketing director at Nemetschek Vectorworks. "Our goal with the BIM Camp program is to provide resources for architects and designers to succeed, no matter where they are on the BIM path. From learning the basics about the BIM process, to gaining a better understanding of the legal aspects of BIM, to dealing with site planning or structural analysis, BIM Camp attendees are able to gain practical information to help them in their work."
Each BIM Camp offered a full day of education sessions about how IFC-based standards benefit design teams. Attendees also learned about the legal considerations related to BIM, as well as how to create sustainable and high-performing designs and collaborate through Open BIM. In addition, attendees in the US earned four AIA/CES/HSW or LA CES PDH and received additional BIM resources as takeaways.
