This class will focus on sharing workflows for integration of Revit software models into preconstruction and construction phases of self-perform work. This class will explain how to model for effective takeoff and shop drawings. We will also discuss communication foundations for training and for sharing the model throughout the project life span, and we’ll provide lessons learned/best practices for these workflows. This session features Revit and AutoCAD. AIA Approved
