Premio Mies van der Rohe 2013 - Mención Especial Arquitecto Emergente: Nave De Música Matadero Madrid
We’ve been going through some exciting changes here at Nemetschek Vectorworks, and we thought we’d take you inside our Columbia, Maryland headquarters to see what’s been going on.
Investing in the development of an ever-improving product means investing in high-performing people, and to that end we’ve increased our staff by 50% in the last few years. Some highlights include the addition of a cloud engineering team to focus on our Vectorworks Cloud Services offering and the addition of regional sales representatives in the United States to provide local presences in San Diego, Dallas, and Chicago.
All this growth has created a need for bigger and better office space. We recently renovated our main building to add more conference rooms, a bigger kitchen and cafe area, and skylights to let in lots of natural light. A short time later, we expanded to include space in a nearby building. The new space–The Studio–has an open concept to encourage creative collaboration among team members.
We’ve expanded our presence around the world, as well, with new distributors in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Ukraine, and China. A Chinese-language version of Vectorworks software was launched in 2012 to meet the needs of this growing market. We also expanded our Vectorworks Service Select subscription offerings, bringing benefits such as free updates, preferred support status, Cloud Services and expanded libraries to countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Japan, France, Norway, and Sweden. And, we’ve brought our BIM Camp program to cities across the United States, Brazil, and the Benelux region.
We will continue to grow and invest in our products, services, and people in order to bring the best solutions possible to our customers. We hope you’ve enjoyed this glimpse inside Nemetschek Vectorworks!
