Using only Revit software during the schematic design phase of the project enables you to quickly explore design alternatives through iterative design. Tapping into the information-rich models for quantity takeoffs helps to produce more accurate cost estimates, compressing the timeline from design to procurement to construction, virtually eliminating errors and omissions, and reducing the likelihood of RFIs and change orders. With integrated analysis for energy and carbon, you gain design insight where the most important design decisions are made. Perform wind and solar radiation analysis with user-friendly tools. Conduct cloud-based whole building energy analysis with web-based software. Optimize energy efficiency, and work toward carbon neutrality earlier in the design process. With faster, more accurate energy analysis of building design proposals, architects and designers can work with sustainability in mind earlier in the process, plan proactively, and build better.
