RA204: Site and Structural Design for Revit Architecture
The main purpose of the architectural tools in Revit are to design buildings: walls, doors, floors, roofs, and stairs. However, architects also frequently need to add site and structural information.
The Site and Structural Design for Revit Architecture course covers the elements and tools that are used to create topographic surfaces for site work and add structural elements.
Site Topics Covered
- Create topographic surfaces.
- Add property lines and building pads.
- Modify toposurfaces with subregions, splitting surfaces and grading the regions.

This course is designed for experienced Revit users who wish to expand beyond their basic skills into more advanced Revit functionality.
Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the architecture tools in Revit as taught in the RA101: Revit Architecture 1 – Fundamentals course. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard elements, copying and moving elements, creating and working with views, etc.
