Important notice about this course


This programme will provide learners with a solid grounding in Building Information Modelling (BIM) using Autodesk’s Revit. Participants use Revit to learn about building information modelling and the tools for parametric building design and documentation.

This course offers metric hands-on exercises representing real-world design scenarios. The attendees learn the concepts of BIM through the modelling of a basic building, from creating the building to making a window/door and a room schedule, and looking at shadow studies and rendering.

→ BIM versus CAD

→ Revit Architectural and Structural interface

→ Starting new projects and file management

→ Using families (walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, roofs and components)

→ Annotation

→ Generating levels, columns, grids, stairs, and railings

→ Creating sections, call-outs, schedules, and construction document sets

One class of two and half hours per week for 8 weeks (6.30-9.00pm Wednesdays).

You MUST have completed our Computer Aided Design course or be at an equivalent level.

Architects, Architectural Technologists, Interior Designers and Engineers who want to learn about building information modelling, working in 3D & using design visualisation.
