8 AIA Learning Units

OverviewPrerequisitesCourse Outline

This one day instructor-led Revit plumbing course and tutorial will teach students to use Autodesk Revit MEP Plumbing to model discipline specific MEP systems for real world applications. The instructor will use lecture, discussions, and hands-on practices (based on real customer scenarios) to teach students techniques for initiating a Building Information Model (BIM) project, recommended workflows and basic skills required to layout plumbing and fire protection systems, solving common issues, and use its tools to create and modify discipline specific MEP systems and parametric engineering components. Given a complete architectural building model (as a reference), the student will be able to produce a commercial BIM design that contains functional plumbing and fire protection systems. The student will then be able to extract 2D drawings for construction documents.
