Plumbing Systems design with Revit MEP


Master how to design plumbing and drainage systems that meet the client’s needs and specifications of a building project and secure an Autodesk certificate to prove that you are up to get the job done. This course has been designed to provide building services professionals with with thorough knowledge of building water supply and drainage systems. We used project-based training methods to help you confidently comprehend and design plumbing projects from the ground up. It is well known that theoretical knowledge is no longer sufficient for practitioners to perform in today's market, which is why this course is backed by intensive training on the most recent use of Revit MEP 2024.

Revit MEP is a renowned BIM software in the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing industries; we want to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of its features and capabilities, from the fundamentals to advanced and intricate building water systems. You will learn to develop precise details, plans, and documentation from within a familiar Revit building information modelling (BIM) based environment. this course is prepared by team of industry giants and is crafted to enable you handle your next building service project utilizing the powerful and the latest software technology in your industry, Revit MEP.

Revit MEP supports mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems throughout the lifecycle of a building. However, this course will only cover plumbing and drainage system design as a critical component of building design systems. You will be able to know the key design considerations for building water systems, apply codes and standards, and make sound material selection decisions, select specific equipment and corresponding piping, and understand why and when specialized piping and other equipments are used after taking this course.

This course trains many types of drainage systems, water (hot and cold) supply systems, smart system design, and energy maintenance. Plumbing is one of the most important aspects of building design for the supply and use of water in a structure, that’s why mastering how it works and back it up with powerful design technology makes you stand out in the crowd.
