About this Course

The main purpose of the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software is to design buildings: walls, doors, floors, roofs, and stairs. However, architects also frequently need to add site and structural information. The Autodesk Revit Architecture 2014 Site and Structural Design training guide covers the elements and tools that are used to create topographic surfaces for site work and add structural elements.

At Course Completion

Upon completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Create topographic surfaces
  • Add property lines and building pads
  • Modify toposurfaces with subregions, splitting surfaces and grading the regions
  • Annotate site plans and add site components
  • Work with Shared Coordinates


Students who purchase this training guide should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the Autodesk Revit Architecture software as taught in the Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals training guide and have knowledge of basic techniques taught in this guide. Information on the Autodesk Revit Structure software, which is optimized for structural engineering, is covered in a separate training guide.
