Autodesk Revit 2017 (R1): Architecture Fundamentals – Imperial: Autodesk Authorized Publisher
English books / April 24, 2017

Price: The Autodesk® Revit® software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process through the use of a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. This student guide is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it throughout the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then you learn design development tools including how to model walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs and more. Finally, you learn the processes that take the model to the construction documentation phase Since building projects are extremely complex, the Autodesk Revit software is also complex. The objective of the Autodesk® Revit® 2017 (R1) Architecture Fundamentals student guide is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This student guide focuses on basic tools that the majority of users need. Topics Covered Understanding the purpose of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is applied in the Autodesk Revit software. Navigating the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface….

BIM in Healthcare Infrastructure: Planning, Design and Construction
English books / April 24, 2017

Price: BIM in Healthcare Infrastructure is a guide to the implementation and application of BIM technology in the planning, design and construction of healthcare infrastructure to improve time- and cost-effectiveness in delivering zero carbon healthcare facilities that have a positive effect on staff and patient health. Starting with an introduction and overview of BIM, the guide goes on to detail the use of BIM in the planning, design and construction of healthcare infrastructure – complex buildings characterised by elaborate building services, structural elements or components and a variety of building systems. The key challenges to implementing BIM in this sector, such as motivating and training staff, overcoming resistance to change and developing the business case are highlighted through the inclusion of international case studies. These case studies are further analysed to draw out lessons that can be learned and applied to future healthcare facilities construction as well as generic lessons that can be applied to all sectors and the construction industry as a whole.
