The company has a team of dedicated engineers who currently develop and provide 2D and 3D modeling solutions for various industry sectors, such as engineering, construction, and infrastructure.

“The UAE is a powerhouse in numerous areas, including construction, infrastructure, real estate and media, which, alongside its strong economy, provide an invaluable opportunity,” said Business Development Director Houssien Nassr, who started with the company as a partner in 2004. “Thus, the collaboration between First Star Computer and Vectorworks was natural, as Vectorworks provides the best-in-class 2D/3D design and BIM tools that are used in many interdisciplinary fields and can solve many technical issues in the fields of architecture and design.”
