  1. If you want me to be more clear - "Learn REVIT, it will open more doors. AutoCAD is good, but will limit your potential". As I mentioned above, we are requiring everything in REVIT. The projects I am working on are using the REVIT models to build a the improvements in virtual space prior and create RFI's, identify issues, etc. there first before they occur in the field. Also, we are trying to using as much pre-manufactured components so it is essential that everything is done in REVIT. .
  2. Are bridges still tested by having the Bridge Designer, Bridge Constructor, and Government Contracting Official stand under the bridge while loaded dump trucks are driven overhead? If there is an issue, then those responsible will not make the same mistake twice.
  3. We require our MEP and all sub-consultants to perform work only in REVIT and it seems to be a non issue (the electric guys are the last to change). We are starting to use racking systems and as much pre-manufactured components (bathroom/kitchen PODS, wet walls, etc.) as possible. Using REVIT is essential to have everything coordinated.
  4. Thanks but I don't think the MP's at JBLM appreciate ninja photographers.
  5. We currently have two projects under construction in high seismic zones (Tacoma, WA and Columbia, SC). We also add gypcrete to all the floors.
  6. Our company is big on Cross Laminated Timber and I am currently working on mid-rise structures composed of either CLT or CFS. I really like the CLT structures and the 2021 I-Codes will allow a lot more options.
  7. I took a couple of additional references and ended up not using them ( Welding Symbols Charts, Specifications for Structural Joints using High Strength Bolts, etc.) From what I can remember, the "Steel Manual" questions are pretty basic code look up type questions, you just need to know where to look and have the resource (i.e. the actual "Steel Manual"). If there is a welding question, it would probably be a detail of desired weld and you need to you match the corresponding welding symbol (or vica versa). I believe the NCEES Construction Depth Sample Exam has this type of question on it. Note: There should only be one or two total "steel manual questions" on the exam.
