Throughout these lessons, we'll delve into the fundamentals of modeling in Revit 2016. We'll begin by familiarizing ourselves to the basics of the Revit user interface and system families. We will discuss additional concepts and tools as we explore how to use and interact with system families to become more knowledgeable in the use of Revit and modeling best practices. By the end of this tutorial you will be able to model an enclosed structure and be very comfortable using walls, floors, and roofs in Revit 2016. Software required: Revit 2016.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Safiy Abdur-Rahman. I am the Director of Applied Technology and Building Information Modeling at the New York City Department of Design and Construction. My recent work includes the development of the agency's BIM guidelines, a comprehensive guide for the implementation of BIM for capital project delivery in the city of New York. Some of my latest projects include the management of BIM during design and construction of libraries, fire houses, police precincts, and cultural institutions. Completed work includes the development and implementation of BIM on the New School University Center, JFK International Airport Terminal Four, the New York City Public Safety Answering Center, North Shore LIJ Women's Hospital, Fashion Institute of Technology, and the United States Institute of Peace. In this course, we are going to learn how to begin modeling in Revit 2016. Some of the major topics that we will be discussing in this course will include beginning a new project and the Revit user interface, creating levels and grids, floor plan views, and modeling using system families, walls, floors, and roofs. By the end of this training, you will be able to use Revit 2016 to begin creating architectural models towards the development of construction documents. I am excited to share these valuable skills and techniques with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
