The aim of this class is to demonstrate how teams within a construction company can use Autodesk Revit Live and what benefit such use can bring to their daily activities. Autodesk Revit is a software package most commonly used by design consultancies and architectural practices across the UK. It allows the creation and coordination of BIM models delivered by multiple members of the design team. Within the CAPEX phase, the model is passed to the contractor for clash detection, quantity take-off, and scheduling purposes, further to populate BIM models with information necessary for the Operational & Maintenance phase. Contractors can also use BIM models to provide the client with various design options, adjusting project cost, duration, and quality. Through the use of Autodesk Revit Live, contractors can provide clients with the ability to experience immersive VR visualisation of their project; however, VR usage is not limited to clients? benefits. Various teams within the construction company can benefit from visualising BIM models in a virtual reality environment.
