Today my computer needed to be updated to Revit 2020, so I was on the phone with our IT people for the whole morning trying to get that done! Sadly, there was an installation error and it never got completed.

Today I sat in on a meeting about our project in Daniel Island. It was interesting to hear about all of the details that need to be coordinated to ensure the success of a large-scale project like this. I was able to sit and listen in, and finish up my IT problems and get Revit 2020 downloaded onto my computer (Finally!).

Redlines today for 890 Island Park Drive! Today I was working on floorpan redlines.
AXP Hours: 4PDD
Event Venue on Daniel Island
890 College Park Road, Daniel Island, SC
Scope: One of our architects designed a multi-use event venue for Daniel Island that SMHa has worked on through Schematic design and are following through construction administration.
Project Manager: Chris Atlman
Role of Student: I have assisted with Redlines for Construction documents
What I have learned:
I have learned this week to be very careful with what I am moving in a Revit model. There are tons of people (including structural engineers and MEP engineers) that are working on one project and any move I make is pretty important! That stresses me out and I don’t like the pressure of working with so many other people. I also learned that Revit and autodesk products are extremely hard to put onto your computer and you will run into a lot of push back. And lastly, I have learned that sometimes, you just have to wait and let your computer get to work before you can do anything. Even though it is frustrating to wait, I really needed to get it done. It seems that architectural offices are pretty dependent these days on the functionality of their computers.
