Course Duration: Option 1: 10 days – 10 hours or Option 2: 6 half days – 18 hours
Course Overview: This course will cover an overview of Revit concepts, user interface, project set-up, designing with digital building components, producing drawing sheets, and detailing and documenting the project. The main objective is to teach the concepts of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and introduce the tools for parametric building design and documentation using Revit. This course will provide the trainee with a solid foundation in Building Information Modelling (BIM) using Autodesk’s Revit Architecture. Throughout the course, the trainee will be shown how to create 3D architectural models, from schematic design through to construction documentation.
Recommended experience level: No previous experience required.
