  1. Thanks for the detailed answer. I agree with what you describe and yes design is changed many times until construction. What we want is to model as we build and not simplify as we are used to with drawings. Everything we build as landscape architects must be designed to handle water and snow. I know we are lucky here in Norway where landscape architects are often allowed to be involved in designing until the building is completed. We almost always make working drawings, details and model built-in drawings. Our largest public builders are at the forefront of demanding open BIM in their projects. Several customers have helped to support landscape architects by building expertise at IFC and BIM. With small grips and adjustments in design tools, we can deliver models that allow the contractor to build according to the model and not drawings. I also think projects get better when landscape architects have expertise in the construction process. If we model the way we build, we will discover and change solutions that will enrich projects and save costs.
  2. I support Poot's demand for a 100% ratio between model and construction site. Yes, landscapes have too long been allowed to rely on 2D drawings because we do not have good 3D BIM solutions. Our customers demand that landscape architects can deliver 3D BIM models that the contractor builds directly from the model. This is not the future, these are requirements we have received in recent years and one example is that we must model falls on steps in stairs. Why should the landscape architect not be able to model 1:1 between model and construction site? Engineers model 3D reinforcement with properties and the contractors build from the model. I do not know detailed requirements that landscapearchitects receive from construction sites around the world, but on large projects in Scandinavia, it is expected that landscape architects now deliver at the same level as architects and engineers, 1:1 between model and construction site. I have used Autodesk Revit on landscape projects since 2005 and have high expectations that Vectorworks will give me big gains in time use and the opportunity to model landscape projects in 1:1. Therefore, I have spent countless hours training, testing and adapting in Vectorworks since 2019. Personally, I greatly appreciate learning and seeing solutions that can support my belief that landscape architects will be able to model complete BIM in Vectorworks and share the models with contractors who builds only from the model without help of 2D drawings.
