3-day Workshop on Revit for BIM Authoring – Essential Training

I’m thankful that the 3-day Workshop on Revit for BIM Authoring – Essential Training had been successfully conducted on 24th – 26th July 2017 at CAD Center, Faculty of Built Environment, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).

The participants consisted of postgraduate students from UTM and Wawasan Open University as well as practicing architects from RDC Arkitek and y.architects.

The workshop covered fundamental understanding of BIM concept, process and applications.  Besides that, there were 5 modules on Revit hands-on exercises where the participants learnt to use Autodesk Revit for BIM authoring.

Visit to Forest City

I’m grateful for a fruitful technical visit to the Forest City project in Iskandar, Johor.  Together with a few engineers, we had the opportunity to tour around a few buildings and construction sites including a case study project of precast construction using building information modelling (BIM).
