Description

What is Revit?

Revit is a BIM software used to create intelligent 3D models of buildings and production of construction documentation drawings and architectural presentations. It is not only used for architectural design and documentation but also for seamless collaboration and coordination amongst Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) disciplines.

What you will Learn

In this beginner’s guide, you are going to learn the following:

  • Setting up a Revit Project (model)

  • The Revit 2019 Start Screen and Navigating around the software

  • Setting building levels for a single storey residential project

  • Drawing the walls; adding doors, windows and interior components; modelling floors, ceilings and roofs; customising the presentation styles for building elevations and floor plan

  • Creating a colour fill legend for room labelling and annotation.

This is a project-based course. We will be working on a single storey residential project, modelling everything from scratch as I explain the details in a simple step by step way.

Hello! I’m Nzangi Muimi, a Quantity Surveyor and Educator based in Nairobi, Kenya. It's a pleasure to meet you on the internet!

My goal here is to be able to share as much as I have learned from the projects I have worked on and the various concepts that I am continually researching and writing about. I have worked in the construction industry managing construction projects for my clients and advising them on costs and project-based financial management.

As part of my research work, I am interested in the area of construction information management, particularly building information modelling. My past articles have been featured in “The BuildPress”; a magazine by the Architectural Association of Kenya and “The Quantity Surveyor”; a journal by the Institute of Quantity Surveyors of Kenya.

I have mastered the software that I use on a day-to-day basis to accomplish tasks. These include ArchiCAD & Revit (for BIM and CAD), Microsoft Project for project scheduling, WordPress CMS for building websites and Excel for preparing cost estimates, budgets and bills of quantities. On this platform, I endeavour to share what I have learned over time in a simple easy-to-follow step-by-step approach to ensure that my students grasp every concept that I teach.

I, also, hope to share inspirations about my journey to motivate everyone here to give their best in everything they do as they build excellence with passion.

Cheers.
