Nemetschek Group Brands Exhibit at AIA Conference in Orlando


Munich/Orlando, April 27, 2017 – Three of the largest brand companies within the Nemetschek Group are presenting at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017. The Nemetschek Group is one of the leading software providers in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry with 14 strong brands focused on optimizing the process of designing, building and managing buildings and on true-to-life visualization. The AIA Conference starts today in Orlando and runs until April 29. Around 20,000 attendees from the building industry are expected at the conference and exhibition.

At the opening of the conference, Sean Flaherty, chief strategy officer at the Nemetschek Group, commented that “we are very happy to be represented by Bluebeam, GRAPHISOFT and Vectorworks this year. All three brands are strong players in the U.S. with excellent vertical solutions. They thoroughly understand the needs of the building industry and provide true value through open standards and model quality.” The three companies are exhibiting in close proximity to one another at the AIA Conference underscoring the broad range of solutions within the Nemetschek Group.

Bluebeam (booth #2763)

Bluebeam, a leading developer of innovative technology solutions for the AEC industry, is returning to AIA 2017 to talk with attendees about workflows, design challenges, technology, and the latest enhancements to Bluebeam Revu. Launched earlier this year, Revu 2017 enables architects to manage all 2D and 3D project communication with a document-based collaboration platform as well as advanced markup and automation tools. At the show, Bluebeam will demonstrate how design professionals can leverage the power of Revu to increase collaboration and streamline workflows. It will also exhibit their latest measurement, estimation, and image-based tools, including new 360° photo and 3D PDF solutions.

GRAPHISOFT (booth #2963)

GRAPHISOFT North America will be showcasing its award-winning app, BIMx, with new virtual reality (VR) capabilities via Google Cardboard. GRAPHISOFT will also give a preview of the new features to appear in the next version of BIM software, ARCHICAD 21, to their users at the annual Customer Appreciation Breakfast on Friday, April 28, 8–10 a.m.

On Saturday, April 29, 11 a.m.–12 p.m., Richard Crowe, AIA, principal GRC Architects, will give a talk entitled “Small Firms, Big Projects Powered by BIM” in which he will present different case studies. Attendees will get a snapshot into the ever-evolving world of BIM, with emphasis on cutting-edge BIM benefits, including level-of-detailing strategies, accessing of construction documentation, and model sharing throughout the design process.

Also, designLAB, an award-winning Boston firm working with GRAPHISOFT solutions, will receive an AIA Honor Award for Interior Architecture on Friday, April 28, 3:30–4:30 p.m., for the design of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, Claire T. Carney Library.

Vectorworks (booth #2863)

Vectorworks, Inc., a global design and BIM software developer, will offer personalized Vectorworks® Architect software demos and presentations on features that enable designers to complete any project in any phase of design.
