NemVW_logoNemetscheck Vectorworks opened a new office in Atlanta. The main goal of this office is to employ software engineers who will further develop the Vectorworks product line, serving the AEC (architecture, engineering and construction), landscape and entertainment design industries, the company said.

Located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta on Regions Plaza’s 19th floor, the 3,700 square foot office can hold up to 25 people. Additionally, the location is in close proximity to the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), four MARTA stations and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

“Several factors contributed to our decision to open the Atlanta office, but location was a prime reason,” said Biplab Sarkar, Ph.D., chief technology officer of Nemetschek Vectorworks. “We wanted our next location to be easy to travel to and in the same time zone as our headquarters in Maryland. The impressive Georgia Tech feeder system was also a highly attractive factor.”

In addition to the Georgia Tech pipeline, the company cited the following reasons for choosing Atlanta for its new office:

  • Affordability for emerging professionals and families because the cost of living is 90 cents below the national average;
  • The 2.4 percent job growth rate, which is above the national average; and
  • Startups and major corporations, such as Coca-Cola, Home Depot and UPS, also make their corporate homes in the Atlanta area.
