No matter your role in building design software—mechanical, electrical, or plumbing—Revit has features for you. The software lets you model to a high level of detail and helps support better coordination with other building project contributors.
Streamline the engineering design process with Revit. Use a single model to enhance the communication of design intent, before construction begins. See how Revit supports collaboration with architects and structural engineers
Conduct simulations and interference detection earlier in the design process to help meet requirements for building systems efficiency. Use conceptual energy analysis data for engineering-driven calculations. See how Insight 360 can help.
Use tools created specifically to design, model, and document building systems in the context of a full building information model, including architectural and structural components. Learn more about plumbing design and documentation features.
Model for MEP fabrication using tools that automate the fabrication model layout. Prepare a model for detailed coordination of fabrication and installation. Learn more about the fabrication service conversion feature.
Revit works with complementary products and services that help expand your ability to conduct analyses and design for fabrication.

DLB Associates is a technology-focused engineering firm that uses Revit to help clients visualize projects, such as Google’s data centers and Mecca’s Grand Mosque, before they’re built.
"BIM and project visualizations help us convey technical aspects of our engineering designs to our clients and help them better understand those designs. This visual collaboration enables us to translate their needs into optimal solutions." —Lee Kopsatfis, Director of AEC Services, DLB Associates
Haskell Architects and Engineers completed design on the Scripps Proton Therapy Center, an innovative, $225-million facility in San Diego County, CA.
"BIM helped us visualize how to place the pipes and conduit with a high degree of precision. That is critical on complex buildings." —Aryak Goswami, Mechanical Engineer, Haskell Architects and Engineers
Ohio-based Heapy Engineering, a leader in sustainably based MEP and technology systems design, worked on the $180-million Mercy West Hospital.
"With help from Revit, we were able to show how to build out the entire 250-room patient tower in a warehouse before the building would be topped out. They put in these pre-assembled corridor racks as they constructed the rest of the building, and it saved months of construction time." —Joe Ferdelman, Senior Principal and Leader of the Heath Care Group, Heapy Engineering
Employees of Southland Industries, a large U.S. building systems expert, explain how they use Revit and fabrication software to drive the design, detailing, fabrication, and installation of MEP systems.
"Fabrication bridges the gap between Revit and construction; it gives us the ability to take our design-build concept and enter into that single-model software delivery method that we want to be in and have wanted to be in for years." —Jim Meacham, Senior Project Manager, Southland Industries
