Description

Description

The design development stage of a building design is an important time for refining the building design for meeting requirements, but it is also the time when good communication with the client is crucial for getting their approval. In this class, we will demonstrate ways of using Autodesk Revit software to make sure that you are fulfilling the design criteria through verifying space usage per the program, addressing room occupancy, and visually coordinating fire-rated walls and doors. We will also show how to communicate the design to the client through room data sheets, 3D plans per floor, floor plan shadowing, color schemes, and other methods.

Target Audience
