Science Museum VA Event Center

BCWH Presents to RevitRVA

December 30, 2015

On Thursday, Anca, Chris, and Kelley presented the Science Museum of Virginia Renovations and Expansion project to the local Revit User Group here in Richmond. RevitRVA consists of several local and regional architects, engineers, and contractors, who use the Autodesk Revit software—a building-information-modeling (BIM) program—on a daily basis and are looking to share knowledge and learn from each other’s experiences. BCWH’s presentation included a quick overview of the overall project context and program, but predominately highlighted the capabilities of Revit and how without the software, consultant and contractor coordination would have been very difficult given the complexity of the building’s form.

We would like to extend a big thank you to CADD Microsystems and Moseley Architects for hosting this week’s RevitRVA event, and for allowing us the opportunity to share our work with the local design community. Visit our YouTube channel to see a small portion of Thursday night’s presentation.

The original advertisement for the event:
The Virginia Science Museum is expanding! Pfeiffer Partners and BCWH have teamed up with DMWPV to design an addition to house special events and block-buster exhibits. BCWH, the architect of record, will present Pfeiffer Partners’ creative roof and building design, intended to juxtapose the existing structure of the historic former Broad Street Station dome, and accentuate the alignment of the original railway tracks.  The use of Revit during the design process was essential in the proper understanding of what is actually to be built.  In this session, you will hear how Pfeiffer Partners, BCWH, and DMWPV created and used Revit models to communicate, analyze and create documents for this complex structure.
