“My firm was an early adopter of the forward thinking design software, ARCHICAD. We’ve been using ARCHICAD for over twenty five years now and have found it to be the most comprehensive architectural design software on the market.

I don’t know of another software package that handles all of these various design tasks with such seamless and efficient continuity."
