In this module the learner will use Revit 3D software to generate HVAC system layouts. The learner will use Revit software to estimate pipe sizes, duct sizes and understand the energy usage within buildings. From the information stored within the software Material Take Off lists and other reports will be generated.

On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:

  • Source and place mechanical equipment, pipework, duct work and electrical components, within a multi-discipline 3D model, using Revit software.
  • Estimate pipe sizes and duct sizes using Revit software.
  • Utilise Project Browser to generate and manage useful views.
  • Generate and print reports and schedules using Revit software.
