I am a fan of revit systems... I have a dream... that one day... my facility
will be an intelligent model... where ductwork and accurate schedules can
reside in the same plan...

alright... mlk I'm not... but, I still think this program bodes well for my
future and would go far to alleviate many of many of my documentation
frustrations.
the first hurdle will be to get it taught in schools, so that I can ask my
contractors to use it...

Thanks for being a fan Melanie!

The following colleges & high schools are either teaching Revit Building in a design studio, BIM course or are making it available to their students.
· Top 5 US Architectural Colleges/Universities (Design Intelligence 2005)
1. Yale University
2. Penn State
3. Texas A&M
4. Iowa State
5. Rice University (Spring 2006)

· 73 Universities/Colleges in North America

· 163 High Schools in North America

As BIM adoption grows in the building industry, so does the use of BIM in educational curricula. BIM is being leveraged within several universities around the world and students who have hands-on access and training to this way of working are not only accelerating their design thinking and studio work, but laying the foundation for dramatically advancing their future in the industry.

I'm an optimist, what I can I say?
well... aside from...
http://mistressofthedorkness.blogspot.com/2006/02/future-from-fm-perspective.html

From my LUG, I've met some instructors at a local tech school, and have been
speaking with them about their curriculum. The teachers are being torn...
they know they want to teach BIM and other PEN-type programs, but, not many
companies are using programs like ABS... likely because they can't get
people who know how to use it (or existing people who aren't afraid of
change/initial loss of productivity). I believe they now teach with Inventor
in their manufacturing classes, which is a good step, but, of course, not
the one that will benefit me the most.

Almost all of our work is done by outside contractors. Some of them are
fantastic at what they do, using autocad, and with a construction schedule,
there's not time for learning and implementing a program so different from
autocad. :smileysad:

I know I should just be patient... :smileywink: but, I see those guys using Revit and
they *love* it, and I want my MEP contractors to be like that, too. I'm not
even an archie and I've been hooked on Revit since I saw it at AU2003 (I
think).

BTW... thanks for the reply... would you mind if I post what you've written
on my blog??? please.

hmm... This is a really cool site... and a fantastic idea.


A free networking site for students in the fields of architecture,
design, civil, and mechanical engineering. Members are able to download
student editions of Autodesk software, find jobs, discuss projects, share
work, learn from community experts, and make new friends.
