LI Campus offers high-quality educational content to landscape professionals around the world To help nurture the professional development of landscape professionals, global design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, Inc. sponsors the launch of the Landscape Institute’s (LI) digital learning platform, LI Campus. As a collection of educational content for landscape professionals, LI Campus will give users immediate access to a wide range of content, incorporating the past three years of LI events, conferences and continuing professional development (CPD) days. “As a new online service, LI Campus offers a more accessible, inclusive and affordable way of delivering CPD and learning,” said LI Chief Executive Daniel Cook. “It will give landscape practitioners based in remote or international locations access to all of our latest content. We are already seeing across the sector the rising importance of people skills, digital practice, community engagement, co-design, natural capital, place management, horticulture and parks management. These extend well beyond our traditional fields of practice: landscape architecture, planning, management, science and urban design. LI Campus seeks to be the premier hub for professional development and learning for all these important landscape disciplines.” The Landscape Institute is the UK chartered body for landscape professionals. It also serves as an educational charity that promotes the art and science of landscape practice. It provides a professional home for all landscape practitioners including landscape scientists, landscape planners, landscape architects, landscape managers and urban designers. “Vectorworks has been working with the Landscape Institute and providing solutions for landscape design professionals for over 35 years,” said Adrian Slatter, Vectorworks UK director of sales. “The launch of the LI Campus provides a fantastic medium for sharing knowledge and best practice and Vectorworks UK is delighted to be a sponsor of this initiative. Having been involved with the BIM Working group and more latterly with the Digital Working Practice group, we are eager to engage with LI members and community. We hope that this new initiative will help advance awareness of landscape design, including sustainable site design and collaboration to help drive better landscape performance.” To learn more, visit the LI Campus page here. Those with Landscape Institute subscriptions can access free on-demand webinars that also feature Vectorworks training content.
Collaboration will expand design solutions in Scotland On March 9, 2017, the Scottish Government announced that as part of its digital technology strategy, BIM should be considered for the design, construction and operation of all public buildings and infrastructure. In turn, this is increasing the demand for 2D/3D/BIM design software in the Scottish market. Therefore, along with the release of Vectorworks 2020, Vectorworks is delighted to announce a new partnership with Scottish software and support specialist CMYK Digital Solutions. “With the existing demand and growing interest in design solutions incorporating BIM capability, it’s a meaningful development to add CMYK Digital Solutions to our network of partners across the UK,” said Vectorworks UK & Ireland Sales Director Adrian Slatter. “Together with ever increasing software capability as evidenced by the release of Vectorworks 2020, this will further strengthen the ongoing growth of Vectorworks in this market. Scotland represents a significant part of the Vectorworks business and this move will help further accelerate the growth we have seen across the UK and Ireland in recent years.” CMYK Service Operations Director David Crosby explained that they have been keen to better serve their existing and prospective architectural clients by extending their existing software portfolio. “With the addition of Vectorworks’ intuitive design software, architects, architectural technicians and BIM managers in Scotland will have a better choice of design tools and a supplier committed to helping them make the most of their investment,” said Crosby. “With the government’s ongoing commitment to BIM requirements for public buildings and infrastructure projects in Scotland, we are ideally placed to help customers and prospective customers who need to deliver projects that meet the new standards.” Learn more about the newly launched Vectorworks 2020 at vectorworks.net/2020.
