Back into the Revit MEP Swing - Ross & Baruzzini - Revit MEP

My favorite Revit MEP client has had us helping them with training for their latest project. Every time I have an architect tell me that their engineers aren't use Revit MEP so why should they get Revit Architecture, my answer is always, call Ken at Ross & Baruzzini. They're a national firm that is so far ahead of their competition and very forward thinking with Revit.

I write about them in my blog (link1, link2, link3, link 4) and they write about CADD Centers in their blog (link 1, link 2, link 3). It's the perfect partnership and one of the things I love about not being a box pusher, is that we can provide support and implementation for Revit MEP firms anywhere in the country and now that I'm a LEED AP, we can do even more with Ecotect and IES for firms of their stature.

Ross & Baruzzini is in the process of completing our first Revit MEP project. For those of you familiar with the process you understand what a great accomplishment this truly has become. Ross & Baruzzini has completed a few BIM or Revit models in the Architectural department over the past two years but have never been afforded the opportunity to dive into an MEP model.

The Revit committee has been meeting on a monthly basis to identify potential full service projects that our operators, engineers and owners would be comfortable starting. This proved to be a very difficult task since not everyone in the industry understands the benefits or even has the software and hardware to receive and open Revit files. With the recent addition of the Columbia College project we have been given the opportunity to show our capabilities and I am happy to say everything is moving along great. Nathan, Zak and Kent have taken on the challenge with open arms and not a minute to soon!

It looks like we have another Revit project in the lineup for the San Diego Airport which will involve our AES group with Karen, Brad and Travis leading the way. Anyone wishing to learn Revit through the tutorials should give the IS team a call, we will install and configure the software on your system so you can follow the tutorials at your own speed. We are currently building a training and tutorial section on the intranet Revit Page.
