80,000 Cubic Meters of Concrete: Revit and Dynamo for Project Managers | Autodesk University

December 9, 2019

Description
In an engineering, procurement, and construction context, the project manager is asked to plan, monitor, and determine the project growth in order to manage the process, and eventually take remedial action if required. This difficult activity can be simplified and supported using Revit software and Dynamo software in order to automate the extraction of project progress curves. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to build your Revit models for the hosting of useful data that are than managed through Dynamo. The final outputs consist of reports that can be shared with management whenever requested or required. With this approach, the project can be accurately planned and continuously monitored, and its status can be easily shared. This class will show the application of this methodology on a large industrial plant currently under construction in the Middle East.

Key Learnings

  • Understand how to plan, monitor, and determine the project progress and the construction work front with Revit and Dynamo
  • Learn how to use Revit to coordinate engineering and construction activities on a real megaproject
  • Learn how to use Dynamo to manage custom data built inside your models
  • Learn how to visually track your project growth

Speakers
Marco Mellacqua is a CAE System Engineer at Maire Tecnimont a worldwide general contractor with a specific focus on the oil & gas, petrochemicals and fertilizer processing industries. He obtained his master’s degree at Politecnico di Milano with thesis abroad on Building Information Modeling and Management at Northumbria University UK. During the degree activities he collaborated to the research project, funded by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, for setting up the Italian BIM construction database in order to push a radical innovation into the Italian construction sector. In the last years he is strongly involved in BIM methodology development for plant design and information management of engineering data.
