Inside Out: Implementing Revit for Interior Design Teams

1,145 views

Published on

What is preventing interior designers from taking up Revit? We can't just keep blaming a lack of content. Maybe we don't need BIM but why should we use Revit for interior design? And why are interior designers so special anyway? The most important question this class will answer is how can we help them transition to, or improve their use of Revit?
This slidedeck is from a class presented at BILT ANZ 2018.
Interior design teams have different needs to architects, your architecture template and library might need some work and the Revit essentials 2 or 3 day training courses don't meet our needs. This class will discuss what the needs of interior design teams might be (and how to better understand your interiors team), both from a technical and a change management perspective. How to turn your Revit Inside Out (or should that be Outside In?)!
The class draws on 20 years of experience as a lead interior designer managing projects from very small to very large, including commercial / workplace, education, multi residential and hospitality - for over 10 years working exclusively in Revit and working with 5 different practices to implement or improve their Revit from the Inside Out.

Inside Out: Implementing Revit for Interior Design Teams

  1. 1. ROYAL ICC BRISBANE 24 – 26 MAY 2018 Inside Out Implementing Revit for Interior Design Teams Ceilidh Higgins Custance / The Midnight Lunch www.themidnightlunch.com @ceilidhhiggins @BIMinions
  2. 2. thanks!
  3. 3. and also RTC events
  4. 4. filming ok
  5. 5. Interior Design Leader Senior Associate Revit User (& Architect)
  6. 6. Writer Speaker Thought Leader Futurist BILT committee
  7. 7. 3 projects shortlisted for 5 interior design awards over 50,000sqm of office fitout trained more than 20 interior designers in Revit
  8. 8. workspace
  9. 9. designed and documented
  10. 10. in Revit
  11. 11. really!
  12. 12. multi residential
  13. 13. health
  14. 14. educational
  15. 15. institutional
  16. 16. Its not all about furniture
  17. 17. or modelling complex shapes
  18. 18. People Training Content
  19. 19. People
  20. 20. who are they? how do they work? what do they need?
  21. 21. we don’t wear black
  22. 22. less experienced
  23. 23. less technical
  24. 24. projects are faster
  25. 25. programs are short
  26. 26. teams are smaller
  27. 27. Our design process & outputs are similar BUT different to architecture
  28. 28. what we need revit to do is different
  29. 29. we don’t need sites
  30. 30. or even windows
  31. 31. we need familes
  32. 32. materials
  33. 33. scheduling
  34. 34. but also efficiency
  35. 35. how to get there?
  36. 36. how does your interiors team work?
  37. 37. what to understand? • project phases • design process (is it 3d? who designs?) • software & skill levels • types of outputs (design & documentation) • standard documentation and details • what can change?
  38. 38. seek different viewpoints
  39. 39. there are no standards
  40. 40. find champions
  41. 41. why revit?
  42. 42. think about your teams why? • improving internal efficiencies • consistency between architecture & interiors teams • upskilling your interiors team • rendering, virtual reality and beyond • BIM project deliverables
  43. 43. its not all about revit
  44. 44. Content
  45. 45. common questions key considerations templates & libraries
  46. 46. we can’t get the furniture & materials
  47. 47. generic vs supplier
  48. 48. core library
  49. 49. generic core library • looks good in plan • stylistically representative of the kinds of things your team specify • only swap out if necessary
  50. 50. use the same family
  51. 51. Casework • Benches – straight, L shape, U • Above bench cupboards – single, double, corner, open shelves. Door panels to be switchable and to have switchable handles. Panel options for no handle or with handle. • Below bench cupboards – as above and also 1- 4 drawers. Door panels to be switchable and have switchable handles.

Do we integrate steel and timber framed doors into the same family or have separate families with the same panel options? • 1.5 leaf with options as above • Double leaf as above • Cavity slider with solid leaf • Surface mounted slider with all options as for 1. Furniture • Tables – Square/Rectangular, circle, elipse, semi circle, barrel – with interchangeable legs/bases (disc, cylinder, square, square frame, round, legs, slab) • Generic Lounge – 1-4 seater (with parametric dimensions) • Lockers – Ability to have different stack height and door dimensions and possibly also to add bench. • Task chair – mesh and upholstered • Meeting chair (on castors) • Café/breakout chair (on legs) • Planters Furniture systems • All with interchangeable legs – square, round, slab ends, square frame, A frame • Bench workstations – Single, and multi seat configuration with 4/6/8 seats.
