Building Information Modelling (BIM) is fast becoming the industry standard. BIM can simultaneously deliver high quality renderings and working drawings.
This course will enable students to create 3D architectural projects and models, and set them up as working drawings. The course will focus on the main and most basic tools that are needed to work with the Autodesk Revit Architecture software.
This is a hands on course that will take students through an example project in order to help them experience the most important key features of Revit Architecture, and understand its impact on the design and construction process.
Petro Liapis has used Autodesk and other CAD products for almost 20 years. He worked as a CAD manager in a city-based international company, and as a senior CAD Technician within a large development company. He is now the information manager for the Estates Department of the University of Greenwich.
Students should ideally have had good experience in Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems and architecture, and wish to make the first steps into BIM and Revit.
Applicants must be proficient in written and spoken English.
