With the introduction of new irrigation tools in 2017, Vectorworks created an entirely new workflow to better serve landscape professionals who design irrigation systems. Bryan Goff of Grey Leaf Design was one of the early adopters of these new tools and will help guide attendees through the tools and associated efficiencies. Bryan will elaborate on general irrigation efficiencies and present a general workflow that designers can build from with an emphasis on EPA WaterSense. Eric Berg, senior associate at Pacific Coast Land Design, will illustrate how landscape architecture firms and irrigation designers can use the irrigation tools and BIM capabilities of Vectorworks to help meet growing regulatory demands, with an emphasis on California’s MWELO requirements in designing water efficient irrigation systems. In aggregate, this presentation will navigate through the irrigation design tools and workflows Vectorworks offers that empower designers to design more efficient irrigation systems. This will include a general file takeaway, giving attendees a head start in their irrigation design workflows.
