The Graphisoft + EntreArchitect Partnership

I am excited to announce that Graphisoft is now an official partner of EntreArchitect and The EntreArchitect Community. I’ve been meeting with the Graphisoft team for months preparing for this partnership and I can confidently say that our friends at Graphisoft are fully committed to supporting our small firms… and our transition to Archicad and BIM.

Archicad BIM software enables design, collaboration, visualization, and project delivery - no matter the project size or complexity. With flexible licensing options, and a dedicated support team to guide us along the way, Archicad is an ideal choice for firms and projects of any size.
