Building Information Modeling (BIM) is no longer an emerging idea. It has solidified itself as the future of delivering projects in the AEC industry, and is being requested by an increasing number of clients

Autodesk Revit is the most common BIM authoring tool in North America. As more of the industry moves towards working with BIM, it will be vital to not only have advanced skills using Revit, but also know how to best leverage it on projects. In this introductory course, you will begin your journey in mastering Revit to deliver successful and profitable projects

Course Outline:

  • Principles of Building Information Modelling
  • Revit Interface for model development
  • View creation and navigation for model control
  • Best practices in starting a Revit project
  • Structural model standards and File Management protocols
  • Component control and modification for design intent
  • Structural Columns and Bracing
  • Placement of Beams, Slabs, Isolated Footing
  • Foundation walls with Pilaster
  • Understanding of Revit Database
  • Overview of worksharing environments with multiple users accessing the same model in real time.
