Boston – Building information modeling (BIM) is among the most important technological advances transforming the way in which construction projects are planned, designed and built.
The Boston Chapter of National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) conducts several series of Revit MEP electrical training and BIM workshops each year to ensure its member contractors’ design and project management teams are up-to-date with the programs and processes that are making construction projects more efficient than ever, including Revit, Navisworks, and BIM 360.
The workshops first teach the fundamental features of Revit MEP and BIM, and then progress through schematic design, system analysis, construction documentation, and design visualization.
Topics covered include:
• Building Information Modeling (BIM) • Revit MEP overview • Drawing tools • Editing elements • Modifying tools • Starting a Revit MEP project • View creation and modification • Spaces and zones • Color schemes • Performance analysis • Electrical systems • Electrical components • Cable trays and conduits • Panel schedules • Construction documents • Annotation tools • Tags and schedules • Detailing
Workshops were held on March 26 and 27. The BIM Coordination Workshop will be held April 17. Another BIM series is being planned for fall 2019 and details will soon be announced.
