Working in the Construction Template in Revit

by Pierre Derenoncourt

In this set of tutorials we'll learn how to work in Revit's Construction Project Template. Software required: Revit 2015.

What you'll learn

Hi there, I'm Pierre with Digital Tutors, an Autodesk Authorized publisher. In this set of tutorials we'll learn how to work in Revit's Construction Project Template. We'll begin by comparing the construction template to another project template within Revit. Once we break down the similarities and differences, we'll then take a look at modeling in the construction template. We'll learn ways to set phasing for our project by breaking down our building into substructure, superstructure, and exterior enclosure. From there, we'll take a look at a few view settings that are specific to the Construction Template. Finally, we'll see how we can easily create Sheets and even Quantity Schedules from the project browser. By the end of this training, you'll understand how to organize your construction model into phases, generate views and plans, and also create sheets and schedules. Software required: Revit 2015.
