Our discussions for the evening will once again focus on site improvements. Bob Cleaver, landscape architect, will lead the discussions and presentations, taking us beyond basic site model creation to modeling the terrain in detail using the tools in Site Planning toolset and commands for Vectorworks Landmark and Architect users. We will also show how to integrate structures onto and into the site and to determine cut-and-fill quantities.
