Autodesk Revit Architecture Pro

Improved course for architects. You will learn how to find solutions for a short time, get complicated modeling process including schedules and documentation. The topic of exporting model to different types is focused as well. Studying process is based on the long experience in education and implies not only «keys» but gives correct ideological approach for modeling process.


Course development is in progress. It is very important for us to receive feedback on the course. Your comments and suggestions will help to develop material on future blocks in a short time. Please feel free to use the feedback form at the end of the course. Or write us on contact@bim.vc.
The educational process is based on many years of experience teaching BIM technology and widely affects not only the “functions”, but also teaches the ideological approach to design development.

About me

I teach BIM technologies to design and construction companies, developers and government structures: with heads I build a transition plan and define goals, organize courses, create a management system, support employees in the work process. I have been using BIM since 2006, I know very well programs (Revit, ArchiCAD, AllPlan) and tools (building models, obtaining specifications, preparing documentation in accordance with GOST). I have a specialized education: in 2011 graduated from St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Polytechnic, Faculty of Civil Engineering. I worked in design structures and on a building site – I understand the design and construction process. Always easily verse in software, was one of the first users of Autodesk Revit MEP in Russia. I like to share information, have created the world’s largest free educational portal on Autodesk Revit in Russian http://www.bim.vc/. In 2012, I have founded Vysotsky Consulting LLC to provide the best BIM consulting in Russia and the CIS. I have combined leading experts in one team. Implemented more than 100 projects.

Competencies

Certified Teacher and Certified Autodesk Revit Professional. I am in the TOP-100 Autodesk technology teachers in Russia (the contest was held by Autodesk in 2014). Repeatedly trained specialists of other training centers. Autodesk Education Expert, Autodesk Experts Elite Professional Community Member.

The most significant projects I participated in

Reconstruction of stained glass windows by William Wallace in Chile: development of a BIM system for storing information on restoration work.

Personal preferences

Married, two children. I spend my free time with my family or at work. I love sports: snowboarding, wrestling. Like climbing and running. I like to listen to music: punk rock, pop, instrumental. Hobbies: “smart home” systems, 3D printing, radio engineering (cars, planes, copters), reading developmental literature, board games.
