Using Vectorworks to Help Grow a Design Build Firm

Edamarie Mattei, NOFA Certified Organic Land Care Professional

Every company wants to grow, but growth brings its own challenges. For firms that experience growth near 50% per year, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain happy clients, manage the expanding workload, and make sure the firm’s project workflows stay consistent and efficient. In this session, Edamarie Mattei, owner of Backyard Bounty, will share how her small D.C.-area landscape design/build firm, which moved from hand-drawing to Vectorworks, continues to maintain preferred design standards and workflows to stay efficient, communicate well, and encourage innovative approaches.
