At the core of designing a HVAC system is a thorough understanding of what goes into a MEP HVAC design. In this course, Advanced HVAC Duct Design in Revit MEP, you will learn the settings within Revit that you will need to adjust to create accurate loads. Next, you will see how to create and evaluate load calculations. And finally, how to apply your load information to a Ductwork layout. When you finish this course, you will have a detailed understanding of HVAC loads and HVAC design in Revit MEP that will help you to become more efficient in you design process. Software required: Revit MEP 2017.

Course Overview
Hello everyone. This is Matthew Warren, the Engineering BIM Manager at BSA Life Structures, and welcome to my course, Advanced HVAC Duct Design in Revit MEP. As many of us know, Revit is more than a 3D drafting tool. It's actually a complicated and sophisticated design tool, and this course is an in-depth look at the what, how, and why of HVAC design within Revit MEP. In this course, we will learn the interaction between MEP spaces and HVAC zones, the settings in Revit that affect your HVAC design, generating and comparing those HVAC loads, creating the ductwork layouts, and evaluating your ductwork design. And by the end of this course, you'll be able to create an HVAC ductwork design and have a solid understanding of everything involved for a successful design. But before beginning this course, it would be helpful to have a basic understanding of the Revit user interface and basic ductwork modeling experience. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn HVAC ductwork design with the Advanced HVAC Duct Design in Revit MEP course at Pluralsight.
