In this session, you will learn how to create an accurate Revit landscape model with Environment tools and workflows for landscape architecture projects of all scales and types. Revit is a powerful platform that has changed the face of the AEC industry over the past years, but landscape architects looking to implement BIM into their work are encountering numerous obstacles. Creating an accurate site model requires complex, time-consuming tasks but with Environment for Revit, the designer can easily model landscape and complete the entire design process within the Revit workspace. Environment is a natural extension of Revit that was developed by landscape architects, with years of learning from real live projects and developing the smoothest workflows. If you are a Landscape Architect or a BIM expert working with LA, this class is for you! We invite you to join us and discover some of the amazing Environment features, and to see how Landscape can come to life within Revit.
Mandai Bird Park Project is an innovative sustainable-construction initiative in Singapore designed to create Asia's largest bird park in a 23-hectaire nature reserve. The design consists of eight massive walk-through aviaries inspired by diverse habitats, 20-meter-tall waterfalls, and an 84-meter-long archway. As part of the Environmental Management and Monitoring Plan, the team had to keep in mind sustainability and preservation goals to minimize changes to the original landscape topology, preserve existing flora and fauna, and replicate a tropical landscape incorporated within the architecture. This intensified the overall construction complexity. The class will show how we fully used building information modeling (BIM) as a single source of truth, reality capture. and cloud platforms, including drone mapping, laser scanning, and 3D surface modeling with Revit, Navisworks, Dynamo, and ReCap software throughout the virtual design and construction (VDC) implementation. This saved us 30% in survey costs, achieved 100% reuse of excavated soil, and prevented the aviaries from clashing with the trees.
