Autodesk Revit Architecture Site and Structural Design

Course Description

Course Length = 1 day
AIA CES Credits = 7

This course is designed for users of Revit Architecture who want to learn more about Site & Structure objects in Revit Architecture.

The main purpose of the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software is to design buildings: walls, doors, floors, roofs, and stairs. However, architects also frequently need to add site and structural information. This training course covers the elements and tools in the Autodesk Revit Architecture software that are used to create topographic surfaces for site work and to add structural elements.

Training Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to:

For Site, students learn how to:

  • Create topographic surfaces
  • Add property lines and building pads
  • Modify toposurfaces with subregions, splitting surfaces  and grading the regions
  • Annotate site plans and add site components
  • Work with Shared Coordinates

For Structural, students learn how to:

  • Create structural grids and add columns
  • Add foundation walls and footings
  • Add beams and beam systems
  • Create framing elevations and add braces
  • Copy and monitor elements across disciplines
  • Check Interferences
