Revit is a powerful design and documentation tool that can greatly increase productivity for any design project, including those that contain existing buildings. In this session, we will discuss best practices when using Revit for an existing building project. We will delve into the specific ways to set up a project to best utilize this robust system and take advantage of its parametric and database capabilities to provide a whole building system that streamlines the documentation of existing building work. You will leave with a checklist of items and a roadmap on how to best utilize Revit for your next existing building project. 1 LU
