Falk Flöther has been working as a specialist dealer for the CAD software ‘Vectorworks’ since 2006. Initially, he was based in Stuttgart but then, in June 2014, relocated to his own site in the Salzburger Saalachtal valley in Austria. This year he started with the construction of his own company building in Lofer, Austria which includes a training room and a company flat.

In the summer, once the shell of the building was complete and it reached the stage of drywall and façade works, we, Leica Geosystems, contacted Mr. Flöther to talk to him about working together.
