SketchUp 2014 Improvements, Scripts, and Plugins
SketchUp 2014 brings with it many improvements. This webinar will present the improvements that will impact how landscape architects do business. You will hear from experts what scripts and plugins they prefer and they will share insights into some of the tricks of the trade. Speakers will discuss how plugins provide great capability within SketchUp as well as exporting a high quality rendered product. These techniques are changing the perception of what SketchUp can produce.

This webinar will be a tremendous opportunity to learn how to get in on the ground floor of some contracting opportunities specifically for LAs.
During this 45-minute session, ASLA members will hear from GSA’s National Design Director for Landscape Architecture, Christian Gabriel, ASLA, and GSA contracting specialist Joseph Imamura, ASLA, about how landscape architects can contract with the agency to work on upcoming federal projects. Specifically, you will learn about GSA’s Public Building Services program, the project delivery methods used by GSA, and how to navigate the agency’s procurement process. The webinar will also provide specific examples of federal projects, including award-winning projects that used the design services of landscape architects.
