Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Understand the use of Revit by a small to mid-sized engineering firm.
  • Be prepared to handle the problems of transferring from CAD to BIM, and their solutions.
  • Use Revit efficiently to develop construction documents for any sized project.
  • Use collaborative technologies such as Autodesk 360 in developing interdisciplinary Revit projects.

Description

Description

This class is a case study on the integration of Revit by a small to mid-sized engineering firm working in building construction. The class will explore the implementation of Revit by delving into a few BIM projects. The study will show that Revit is not restricted to large projects; rather it is well suited to the “everyday” buildings, such as housing, schools, offices, and more. The focus is on experiences the firm had along the way from CAD to BIM such as detailing, coordination, and standardization. Those experiences are lessons that will increase any firm’s proficiency using Revit without sacrificing production. The class will also show the collaboration between architectural and engineering companies on multi-disciplinary Revit projects. In the end, we hope to show architects and engineers of any sized company for any sized project how to integrate Revit into project delivery and how new technologies such as Autodesk A360 will further increase the efficiency of the BIM.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Structural engineers, architects, MEP engineers, and designers looking to start or further develop their use of Revit for the design and construction of buildings.

Christopher Motto

Mr. Motto has been involved in the field of structural engineering for over 8 years. After receiving a bachelor’s in civil engineering from Northeastern University in Boston he continued his education at Columbia University in New York where in 2008 he received a master’s degree in structural engineering. That same year Mr. Motto joined Souza, True and Partners Structural Engineers based in the Boston area where he has been the lead engineer on many projects covering a wide variety of industries including healthcare, research, education, residential, and commercial construction. His designs include a multitude of varying materials consisting of reinforced concrete, structural steel, light gauge framing, conventional wood framing, and reinforced masonry. His unique project experience and academic endeavors have allotted Mr. Motto a highly developed understanding of building information modeling, which he has been actively incorporating into the building design process since 2007.
