Vectorworks, Inc. Wins the Construction Computing Awards’ Editor’s Choice Award
Additionally, Vectorworks Architect was a runner-up in the Architectural Design Product of the Year category
Columbia, MD (December 5, 2019) — The Construction Computing Awards results are in and global design and BIM software provider, Vectorworks, Inc. is the winner of the 2019 Editor’s Choice Award selected by Construction Computing Magazine Editor David Chadwick. Additionally, Vectorworks Architect 2020 was a runner-up in the Architectural Design Product of the Year category.
The fourteenth annual Construction Computing Awards, also known as “The Hammers,” took place on November 14 at The Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden. Over 220 guests gathered to see the outcome of the readers’ online voting and judging panel’s deliberations.
“Having attended the awards for a number of years, Vectorworks UK was delighted to receive the coveted Editor’s Choice Award,” said Adrian Slatter, Vectorworks UK director of sales. “David was very gracious in his introduction of the award, explaining how the growth of Vectorworks and its transformation in the UK was very impressive. That coupled with the innovations in Vectorworks 2020, particularly the incorporation of enhanced GIS integration, made the decision for him. We are so pleased to see the efforts of our company recognized.”
With over 25 categories, the awards are structured to showcase and reward 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.
“Moving from one design solution to another is a major step for any company in difficult times with Brexit, environmental concerns and other issues to deal with; Vectorworks is to credit for having the capability to move from one design solution to another,” said Chadwick. “The recent steps they have taken, such as becoming more directly involved in the UK market to support their users, releasing enhanced versions of their software which major heavily in information management and now adding GIS integration to its comprehensive range of design solutions, has resulted in a significant increase in their market share. There were a dozen contestants in individual applications, hardware and other recent additions to the market, but Vectorworks was an obvious choice this year.”
Winners will appear in the November/December '19 issue of CAD User and Construction Computing magazine. The full list of winners and runners-up can be viewed here.
