Fall is award season in many of the technology industries, including software for the CAD industries. The UK-based Construction Computing Awards are affectionately known as “The Hammers” and seek to showcase and reward the very best tools and solutions for the effective design, construction, modification, and operations of residential and commercial buildings, plus civil engineering projects.
Vectorworks Architect 2023 won Architectural Design Product of the Year. “This award is a huge recognition and endorsement of Vectorworks’ focus on providing exceptional functionality and capability to the architectural market it supports,” said Vectorworks Senior Sales Director Adrian Slatter. “It has been a successful year for Vectorworks as many of our users have won numerous design awards, so this achievement reinforces our commitment to make Vectorworks Architect the tool of choice for architectural design, enabling architects to design without limits and showcase the incredible talent of their teams.”
And speaking of Vectorworks users winning design awards, London architecture and research firm Studio Partington won the honor of runner-up for Sustainability Project of the Year for The Golden Lane Estate project.
Additionally, Vectorworks user and expert trainer Jonathan Reeves won AR/VR Project of the Year for his Forest Rooms architectural project.
Winners will appear in the November/December 2022 issue of CAD User and Construction Computing Magazine. The full list of winners and runner-ups is available on this website.
The Hammers are always an interesting event from the point of view of seeing the back and forth between the main product rivalries in various software categories. It is also valuable to see how more localized software solutions in the United Kingdom market appear as top choices with sizeable UK market share and how some of these solutions are quite unknown here in the United States. One category The Hammers is kind of missing is visualization.
