Revit is a Building Information Modelling (BIM) solution used by Architects, Building Designers and Structural Engineers to develop high quality designs. Our Revit Architecture & Structure Master Course will be divided into 3 different stages, as follows:

Stage 1: Our Revit Essentials will provide you with a thorough grounding on Revit for beginners. On completion of stage 1 you will be able to use Revit to take a project from conceptual through the stage of design, analysis, documentation as well as visulaisation.

Stage 2: The section of this course teaches you everything you need to know to begin creating your own Revit families

Stage 3: The final stage will take you through the advanced features for Revit Architecture & Structure

Revit Essentials for Architecture & Structures. 

During the section of this course, students will be taught the basics concepts behind building information modelling (BIM), The use of Revit’s tools for Architectural and Structural Design and Presentation and visualisation techniques
