Revit Architecture Site & Structural Design

Course description

Revit Architecture Site & Structural Design

After attending one of our Revit Architecture beginners courses, you will be comfortable in creating building, doors, floors, roofs and stairs. However, architects also frequently need to add site and structural information. The Autodesk approved “Architecture Site and Structural Design” 1 day course from CAD Bureau Southern covers the elements and tools that are used to create topographic surfaces for site work and add structural elements. The topics covered are on page 2 of this document and they can be split into separate 1/2 day courses

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is for Architects that have attended a Revit beginners course with ourselves or another Autodesk Authorised Training Centre (ATC). It is not a refresher course for users who have forgotten this content. Other Revit users can attend but they must be current frequent users of the program

Structural Engineers who are exposed to Revit use, but don’t actually use Revit, may attend this course in order to have an overview of how structural techniques work in Revit.
