Archway Announces VersaCAD/Parking Structure

VersaCAD/Parking Structure offers a breakthrough in productivity for architects and engineers who design parking structures. Combining the experience of Gary Miller with the versatility of VersaCAD, this software promises payout in one project.
Mike Lazear, President and CTO of Archway says, "VersaCAD/Parking Structure leverages the CAD Programming Language built-in to VersaCAD to automate what is normally a tedious and complicated design process..

Gary Miller has this to say about VersaCAD/Parking Structure: the program draws what I consider a fully detailed set of preliminary parking structure plans, suitable for contractor estimating and end-user presentation, consisting of a Site Plan, Ground, Typical and Roof Level Plans, four Elevations and six Building Sections along with elevators and handicapped parking In addition, the program produces a quantity takeoff suitable for material and cost estimation. All of this from about 5 minutes of input (not counting time for collection of data which is necessary in any case).

The software includes a series of macro routines that run on top of VersaCAD 2006 for Windows. It is delivered including: CD, VersaCAD reference manual, parking structure implementation manual plus one year of updates and support. The software is easy to install, learn and use. The user can be productive within one day and proficient in a week.

The output from the automatic design process can be edited right within VersaCAD or exported in DXF, DWG or IGES formats that can be readily imported by any of the other popular CAD such as AutoCAD or MicroStation, minimizing the learning curve even further for those that have an investment in CAD they wish to preserve.

VersaCAD/Parking Structure is priced at $2995 per seat for a perpetual license which includes first year of Premium Service (support, updates and maintenance). Premium Service can optionally be renewed annually at $995. Corporate site licenses are available starting at $7500 per year. The corporate site license allows for installation of the software on an unlimited number of computers within the licensees organization.

Ed Vermurlen AIA, President of Vermurlen Architecture, Inc of Grand Rapids MI says, I have been working with the Beta version of VersaCAD/Parking Structure and have had no hickups. This software is a real breakthrough as it relieves the engineer or architect of the tedium of drafting and provides time for evaluating more alternatives leading to a more optimum design as well as time savings..

VersaCAD is a product of Archway Systems, Inc. of Huntington Beach, California. Archway is headed by Mike and Tom Lazear who are credited with developing the first PC-CAD software in 1979. VersaCAD is a registered trademark of Archway Systems.
