required to construct a Revit model as detailed below and create a sheet view of
The model in question is a residential house which you are designing for yourself.
The house is of any shape, e.g. a bungalow or two storey house ,There are no special requirements for the
design; however, one can follow general design guidance provided below:
foundation: 600mm wide and 1200mm deep C30 concrete trench fill under the
external walls with two tie beams (depending on the shape of the structure).
ground floor: 150mm thick C35 concrete slab with one layer of A393 mesh. The slab
is covered by 150mm rigid insulation and topped with a 75mm sand/cement screed
which is covered with a 15mm carpet.
walls: External walls: from inside to outside --> 15mm plasterboard, 140mm thick 7N
blockwork, 100mm cavity (insulated) and 102.5mm facing brickwork.
100mm thick lightweight block construction or timber studs covered with
plasterboard from both sides.
the type of windows and doors selected along with the position horizontally along
the wall is at the discretion of the student. However, suitability for construction and
living should be considered and as such the marking of this will be subjective. The
lintels do NOT need to be modelled.
roof: a flat or pitched roof 45x150mm C24 timber joists at 600mm centres, with
150mm insulation and covered with bituminous finish. If needed steel beams can be
integrated in the design.
The floor plan should incorporate the following rooms – living room, kitchen, bedroom and
bathroom. The size and position of these are at the discretion of the maker. Furniture can
be modelled into the project if desired but this is not essential. This, however, may assist in the understanding of the layout and assessment of the suitability for use
need to make it using specified templete file.
