Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how to utilize schedules to perform energy code calculations
  • Learn how to utilize schedules to better coordinate electrical circuitry with mechanical and plumbing loads
  • Learn how to utilize schedules to check electrical design at the panel and breaker level
  • Learn how to use view filters to catch uncircuited electrical items as well as other disciplines that require power

Description

Description

This class will discuss and present ways to more effectively utilize Revit software for electrical design by better utilizing the data already in the model to perform calculations and checks. Rather than spending days working on the energy code calculation counting the fixtures and space square footages, imagine if you could print out a Revit software schedule with all the information needed to fill out COMCheck in a matter of minutes. Revit software can also be used to help the senior engineers and the QA/QC Teams quickly to check the electrical backbone of a building for things like over- and under-loading of electrical panels/transformers, as well as branch circuit loading to check breaker size, wire size, and load classification with all the information exactly as it is currently modeled. A series of schedules can also compare the current mechanical/plumbing schedules with the current electrical design load to ensure they match. You can use filters to check for uncircuited items as a quick back check.
