REVIT; is a Building Information Modeling (BIM), for drafing, modeling and analysis of buildings; in areas of Architectural, HVAC, Plumbing and Structural components of the building. It is indeed a multi-discipline tool in the  engineering and construction industry. It has brought efficiency, accuracy, flexibility and cost effectiveness to the aforementioned industry. By reason of its flexibility, professionals in other desciplines, who have passion for building service engineering, have been offered the opportunity of charting a career in this field, even while they initially never had training in building services engineering. Moreso; with the HVAC design system in the programme, has reduced, loss of manpower time; usually spent on manual calculations and; checking and correction, in addition to extending its application to other areas requiring HVAC application, like Automobile and Aircraft system.

This training is relevant for:

  • Students; who are interested in pursuing a lifetime career in Building Design
  • Civil Engineers(Fresh, Practicing and Professionals,) in the design and building industry
  • Mechanical Engineers, in the building design service industry
  • Draft Men
  • All other technical professionals, who want to develop their skills in the building service industry, thus working as independent employees in their own capacity
