This course covers the basics of Autodesk Revit in an interior design environment, from design through construction documentation. Students will be introduced to the tools and concepts of working with a fully parametric building model. At completion of the course, the student will complete a small commercial project. Delivery of the course will concentrate on real world approaches and methodology rather than step by step procedures. Each session will define the concept/tools to be covered, provide examples and explanation of those concepts and then provide exercises for students to work through to explore and apply the concepts/tools.
