Revit 2 MEP - HVAC/Piping/FP/Electrical

Training and Certifications (Add to Waiting List. Find it under Graphic Design.)

Duration: 36 hours

Teaching Methodology: Hands-on


AutodeskĀ® RevitĀ® MEP has powerful tools for HVAC, Piping, Fire Protection, and Electrical Engineers. Once the architectural model is complete, MEP engineers will link the file to add MEP components. Upon completion, they can use the software to detect clashes between elements, create views, generate quantity schedules, and prepare documentation.


Participants who take this course will learn in the first part how to link an architectural model, create MEP families, create spaces and zones, and perform energy analysis. In the second part, they will learn how to design HVAC, hydronic piping, plumbing, and fire protection. In the third part, they will learn how to create electrical systems. The following are the main topics to be covered:

Part 1 - Topics that are common to HVAC, Piping, FP, and Electrical engineers:

  • Starting the Implementation Project
  • Sites
  • Tracking Site Coverage and Developing Concepts
  • Families
  • Columns, Beams, and Foundations
  • Walls
  • Slabs, Floors, Ramps, Ceilings, and Roofs
  • Rooms and Areas
  • Rendering

Part 2 - Topics that are specifics to HVAC, Piping, and FP engineers:

  • Energy Analysis
  • HVAC Systems
  • Hydronic Piping Systems
  • Plumbing Systems
  • Fire Protection
  • Fabrication

Part 3 - Topics that are specifics to Electrical engineers:
