The lab will provide a hands-on approach of best practices for how to combine civil site designs in AutoCAD Civil 3D software with foundation designs in Revit software to ultimately collaborate with architects. The discussion will give guidelines for where utility modeling for building should transition from Revit MEP software above grade to AutoCAD Civil 3D software below grade, and how to use Navisworks software in this review process. A key concept to review will be the difference between local coordinate systems that building designers work in and the state plane coordinate system that civil engineers typically use. The discussion will consider civil/structure interaction and the new BIM Forum Level of Development (LOD) specification, and how it relates to setting up projects in AutoCAD Civil 3D software and Revit software. This session features Revit and AutoCAD Civil 3D. AIA Approved
