BIM with Revit MEP

revit mep

Introduction

The primary objective of this course is to teach students the concept of building information modelling and introduce the tools for parametric engineering design and documentation using Revit MEP. Students will learn the recommended workflows and basic skills required to navigate Revit. Upon completion, you’ll know how to create basic floor plans, design electric circuits and lighting systems, model air intake and exhaust systems, create plumbing plans, and design fire alarm and sprinkler systems, and document your designs for construction and fabrication.
