The votes are in, and Vectorworks was named the winner of the “One to Watch Company” category at the Construction Computing Awards. Now in its thirteenth year and known as “The Hammers,” the awards program showcases and rewards the technology, tools, and solutions for the effective design, construction, maintenance, and modification of commercial buildings, residential and social housing, and civil engineering projects of all sizes.
“The Hammers” have dropped, and we’ve received 10 nominations for this year’s Construction Computing Awards. Our company and Vectorworks Architect were nominated for three awards, while the Nomad app also received recognition. Jonathan Reeves, director of Jonathan Reeves Architects, scored three nominations for his projects and work as a Vectorworks trainer.
The 2018 Vectorworks Design Summit is quickly approaching, and we want you to get just as excited as we are! So, here’s a sneak peek at some of the architecture-specific sessions that will be held in Phoenix this November.

In the UK, designing a Paragraph 55 project can be difficult, but getting permission to produce it is next to impossible. Recently, award-winning architectural practice (and Vectorworks user) Squirrel Design made the impossible possible with not one, but two Para 55 projects: The Nimbus in Cornwall, England and Hux Shard in Devon, England. These projects have set this father-and-son firm apart from the rest.
Topics: Squirrel Design, Paragraph 55, Nimbus, Hux Shard, Michael O’Connor, Alex O’Connor, Darrell Willcocks, Dartmoor National Park, Jonathan Reeves, JR Architecture Ltd, 3D Modeling in Vectorworks, UK’s National Planning Policy Framework, Design Review Panel, Atrium Studio School, Cornwall, England, Devon, England
No more teasing, it’s finally here. Today, we released the English-version of Vectorworks 2018 software. Included in the release are Vectorworks Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Designer, and Fundamentals, as well as our previsualization software, Vision. This year we’ve also introduced, Braceworks, an entertainment rigging analysis add-on module targeted to design, production, and rigging professionals working on temporary entertainment structures.

If you’re thinking about implementing a BIM workflow or making BIM a more integral part of your design process, then there is plenty of information out there to help. However, if you're looking to go beyond the concepts behind BIM and see it in action for yourself, pick up a copy of Innovative Vectorworks BIM. This collection of detailed, illustrated case studies showcases projects from the United Kingdom paired with an introduction to BIM modeling to help you reimagine your workflows.
Computers Unlimited, the Vectorworks software distributor in the United Kingdom, recently sponsored the publication of a new book that dispels the misconception that BIM is appropriate only for larger practices. Written by architect and author Robert Klaschka, BIM in Small Practices: Illustrated Case Studies features 10 BIM projects designed by small architectural firms. One of those case studies focuses on industry expert Jonathan Reeves, who has been a loyal Vectorworks user since 1991.
Topics: 2D Drafting, 3D Modeling, Architecture, BIM, BIM in Small Practices: Illustrated Case Studies, Building Information Modeling, Building Regulations, Case Studies, Computers Unlimited, Environmental Standards, Gloucester, Jonathan Reeves, Jonathan Reeves Architecture, JRA, Kingsway School, Large Practices, Quattro Design Architects, Robert Klaschka, Simplified Collaboration, Small Practices, United Kingdom, Vectorworks Architect, Vectorworks software
Days are never dull for RIBA Chartered Architect Jonathan Reeves, whose firm, Jonathan Reeves Architecture, offers a mix of architecture, 3D modeling and visualization, and training services. He devotes much of that instructional time to teaching architects how to optimize their work and adopt Building Informational Modeling (BIM) workflows with Vectorworks software, which he also sells.
