Introduction to Building Information Modelling (BIM) & AutoDesk Revit

Building
  • Level(s) of study: Short course
  • Study mode(s): Part-time (day)
  • Location: City Campus
  • Starting: 16 March 2019; 3 July 2019
  • Course duration: Three Saturdays, or three days intensive

Building on the BIM expertise within the School of Architecture, Design and Built Environment, this course provides a hands-on learning environment for all construction professionals in the creation of a Revit BIM model.

As the UK’s leading Building Information Modelling (BIM) program AutoDesk Revit streamlines the design process with the creation of a centralised 3D construction model.

During the first day you will learn about levels, grids and columns, walls, doors and windows, floors, stairs, ceilings, roofs, sections, elevations, views, layouts and plotting.

Utilising these commands and techniques you will create a building of your choice demonstrating the inclusion of all these aspects.

As the course progresses you will also learn about curtain walling, 3D views, rendered outputs, schedules, families (basic content creation), details and callouts, linked files and layouts and plotting.

This knowledge will extend the modelling from the first day and result in a variety of outputs of the information.

The final day will extend your knowledge further into organic conceptual modelling, how to link and collaborate to other modelling software, and an introduction to BIM analysis.

What will you gain?

Upon completion of the course you will receive a CPD certificate.

“This course gave me the basic understanding (and a lot more!) to help me move forward. I really enjoyed it. It was well paced and ideal with a small class – I think this is really important, so that questions can be asked and answered.” JC

"I enjoyed the course and look forward to putting into practice what I learnt. Many thanks to Geoff for a brilliant three days." DS

"All of the content was most informative. A valuable learning experience." TP

“Geoff was very good at adapting the course to meet our needs, especially with regards to the huge number of questions asked by the group. And it was good to receive paper handouts as well and digital copies.” MW

“I strongly recommend the course to other people.” NN

Tutor profile: Geoff Olner has been advising construction professionals in CAD and Building Information Modelling (BIM) for over 20 years providing both bespoke training courses and direct hands on consultation on digital design management within practice.

As an architect and part time senior lecturer Geoff balances academic research and training in BIM with live projects in his role as consultant to construction professionals.
