About this course

In the vast realm of building design, Revit stands out as a beacon of innovation. As an architect or design professional, mastering this tool can significantly propel your projects and career. This is where ArchAdemia’s “Area Plans & Schedules for Design Projects” steps in – offering a tailored training experience for the forward-thinking designer. Historically, mapping area plans and then laboriously translating them into area schedules, especially through tools like Microsoft Excel, has been a drawn-out chore. With Revit, this entire process can be revolutionized, and we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

Our 5-part Revit training course immerses you into the nuances of creating detailed area plans, and effortlessly converting them into cohesive area schedules. This isn’t merely about refining one aspect of your workflow; it’s about revamping your entire design methodology.

If you’ve been browsing online with terms like “Revit course near me” or pondering which is the “best Revit course,” your quest concludes here. ArchAdemia’s online Revit course isn’t just a series of lessons; it’s a transformative journey, enriched with expert guidance and real-world applications. By blending theory with hands-on exercises, you will harness the full potential of Revit in creating impeccable area plans and schedules.

For those new to Revit, we recommend our treasure trove of free content on our YouTube channel. It’s filled with insights, techniques, and tips, ensuring a robust foundational grasp of the software.

Distinguishing our Revit training course from the myriad of “Revit training videos” available online is our emphasis on pragmatic application. We don’t just show you how to maneuver through the software; we educate you on maximizing its potential in real-world scenarios.

Upon concluding the course, every participant will be awarded a Revit course with certificate. This not only acknowledges your enhanced skills but also augments your professional credibility.

But the true essence of this course goes beyond tutorials and certificates. It’s about empowerment. The skill to meticulously craft, design, and manifest projects with unmatched precision and efficacy. The competency to transform hurdles into springboards, consistently pushing design boundaries.

So, step into the world of ArchAdemia and redefine your design prowess. Through our Revit Training on Area Plans & Schedules, embark on a journey where unparalleled design expertise meets unmatched efficiency. Your Revit odyssey begins now. Register today!

Why ArchAdemia?


We open the course by explaining how to schedule areas when at the early stages of a project. You’ll learn how to add useful information to your appraisals and initial site studies to generate high level build costs, viability and overall space planning.
In this lesson we demonstrate how to add a colour scheme to your drawings that reflect what category of your space your highlighting. You’ll also learn how to add areas to each room and how that builds up your area schedule.
A layer of detail is added in this lesson where we work toward a detail room schedule for a project. You’ll also discover how to tell Revit to calculate grand totals so that you can tell your clients overall gross areas to help them assess the viability and construction value of their projects, quickly.
If you’re dealing with things such as minimum spatial standards and you want a snapshot of whether your project is hitting these targets, you can implement custom parameters in your schedules. This will create columns that demonstrate minimum required areas so you can keep a close eye and avoid mistake. We explain how to do just that in this lesson.
Although Revit has many wonderful tools and automations at its disposal, the level of calculation is limited. So, you may want to export to Excel to add advanced sums. The added benefit of exporting to Excel is that it improves ease of distribution and allows users to make their own modifications if they don’t use Revit.

Why are accurate area plans & schedules important?

Area schedules and plans aren’t just tedious charts or lists in the world of architecture; they’re pivotal pieces in the intricate puzzle of building design. First and foremost, they give a quick snapshot of potential build costs. Imagine a developer’s eyes scanning an architect’s proposal; it’s the accuracy of these schedules that helps them gauge its value. City planners too, lean on them, sizing up the volume of new spaces being added to our urban tapestry. And hey, ever thought about those minimum space standards? Well, accurate schedules ensure every design plays by the rules.

For the folks who’ll call these places home or set up their shops, these plans act as a friendly guide to visualize their new space. Then there’s the team—other consultants get a clear picture of the playing field, making collaboration smooth. And let’s not forget our utility buddies. They’ve got specs to meet, be it room for plant machinery or water tanks. So, in essence, every inch in an area schedule carries weight, ensuring everyone’s on the same page, from concept to construction.
