Getting to BIM for Architects Episode 2 – Getting Started with Revit & BIM for Architects (Beginners) - March 19th

Have you ever been asked for BIM on a project or wondered how do you get started with a BIM project. A large part of getting started is understanding BIM authoring software. In this webinar Jonathan will demonstrate setting up your project using Revit and producing your first BIM model with Revit. He will also cover some of the common workflows inside Revit and how you can get more efficiency and information to better support your transition to BIM.

Getting to BIM for Architects Episode 3 – Getting Better with BIM for Architects (Advanced) - April 8th

So you’ve started your first Revit model for a BIM project and are feeling a bit more comfortable, Jonathan will delve deeper into how to maximise the benefits to your business with BIM. He will cover various workflows inside and outside of Revit. Digitally clashing your model with an engineers model can highlight design issues before they go to site, saving you time. Collaborating with other consultants can be tedious, the use of cloud technologies can ease this process significantly. Visualising your design in 3D really impresses clients and helps you spot design issues before it gets built.
