    REVIT; is a Building Information Modeling (BIM), for drafing, modeling and analysis of buildings; in areas of Architectural, HVAC, Plumbing and Structural components of the building. It is indeed a multi-discipline tool in the  engineering and construction industry. It has brought efficiency, accuracy, flexibility and cost effectiveness to the aforementioned industry. By reason of its flexibility, professionals in other desciplines, who have passion for building service engineering, have been offered the opportunity of charting a career in this field, even while they initially never had training in building services engineering.
