Description

This class will discuss and present ways to more effectively utilize Revit software for electrical design by better utilizing the data already in the model to perform calculations and checks. Rather than spending days working on the energy code calculation counting the fixtures and space square footages, imagine if you could print out a Revit software schedule with all the information needed to fill out COMCheck in a matter of minutes. We can also use Revit software to help the senior engineers and the QA/QC Teams quickly to check the electrical backbone of a building for things like overloading and underloading of electrical panels/transformers, as well as branch circuit loading to check breaker size, wire size, and load classification with all the information exactly as it is currently modeled. A series of schedules can also compare the current mechanical/plumbing schedules with the current electrical design load to better ensure they match. You can use filters to check for uncircuited items as a quick back check. This session features Revit and Revit MEP.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to utilize schedules to perform energy code calculations
  • Learn how to use schedules to better coordinate electrical circuitry with mechanical and plumbing loads
  • Learn how to use schedules to check electrical design at the panel and breaker level
  • Learn how to use view filters to catch uncircuited electrical items as well as other disciplines that require power
