This class will cover the use of Revit software and Point Layout software in construction field layout. We will examine the history of theodolites and the growing use of robotic total stations. We will discuss the process involved in field layout, including control points, resections, offsets, and so on, and how we use them on our construction projects. We’ll also include metrics from a few projects showing the benefits of using these tools. This session features Point Layout and Revit. AIA Approved
