Revit Implementation

Revit as a 3D architectural tool has been designed for use by forward thinking firms to create a more detailed model that, whilst being faster to build, also provides more in-depth visualisation of the project, continuous cross-discipline co-ordination with options to include Building Information Modelling (BIM) processing & integration. As a result of its advanced modelling capabilities and faster documentation process, it allows the opportunity for the firm utilizing the model correctly to increase their profitability due to the efficiency of the programme. The correct training and supervision of staff during the implementation process will result in high quality deliverables, improved client satisfaction, whilst decreasing co-ordination and cross referencing errors

About Revit Architecture

A Revit 3D model is a single database file comprising of all components that make up a building, represented in the various ways which are used for the design & documentation work.
Such representations can be plans, sections, elevations, legends, and schedules. Because changes made to the building model are carried out on one central file, changes made in one representation of the model (for example a plan) are propagated to other representations of the model instantly (for example elevations).
Thus, Revit drawings and schedules are always fully coordinated in terms of the building objects shown in drawings which dramatically reduces the possibility of errors in the documents. In a conventional CAD system none of the drawings are related to each other, meaning all changes need to be manually co-ordinated across the set. Revit automates this.
Multiple disciplines can also work together on the same project by making their own project databases and linking in the other consultants’ databases for verification. Revit can perform collision checking or co-ordination, which detects if different components of the building are occupying the same physical space.

Revit Training

One successfully proven strategy to implement Revit into an Architectural office is to commence work on an actually project and train staff with real documentation issues and challenges. To learn Revit in a classroom on a “pretend” project, and then try to apply that limited knowledge on a completely different situation (maybe sometime down the track, when the classroom learnings are forgotten) is a recipe for failure.

An additional benefit to the company is that the fees paid for the Implementation and Training is directly offset by the income produced by documenting an actual fee paying project.
There is also no out-of-office down time while staff attend training sessions.
