I am interested in finding engineering consultants in my area who use Revit and Collaboration for Revit, Particularly Structural and MEP.  Any Any suggestions for how to do so?   My REVIT provider could only refer very large firms.   All of my existing consultants are using autocad, no plans to change.

How about you start by telling us where you are in the world?

Maybe someone here knows.

 

Some other thoughts:

- search on google for

"Revit" + "Your Area"

"BIM" + "Your Area"

- Open up your phone book and call each one up in your area and ask.

- Access Engineering forums and websites and search for BIM.

- Give your autodesk reseller a backhander and get him to give you a list of all licenses in the area.

- Advertise on Gumtree

- Advertise on Freelancer.com

- Contact the Engineering governing body and ask them.

- Access the online member list of registered/charterd/licenses engineers and contact each one.

- Look thrugh company websites for BIM pages.

 

just some thoughts...

Hope this helps.

SteveB - Why not send out a request to a list of engineers you can get from your local engineering society?  You would be surprised at how many may be considering the jump and just need some opportunities.

 

When we started Revit 10 years ago, we had no engineering consultants using Revit but we convinced a couple of them to start.  We had to work initially with combination projects - some CAD - but even there, we got our engineers to start looking at 3D information so we could import that into Revit.   Structural came over first and early.  Mech took awhile - mostly because of Revit limitations.

What I did was reach out to the Revit providers, including mine.  They would know who their users are.   Trying to find the watering hole, not track every camel, so to speak.   But I get your point.  We do have smaller MEP consultants using Revit, just not structural, except for larger SE firms. Also I wanted to clarify it was an OK use of this site to search for services.

But there may be some thirsty camels out there.....

 

It took some convincing to get our first structural engineer started with Revit.  I kept feeding him 3D analysis of structure on a project we were doing.  Obviously, I had to model the structure to do this but it paid off.   In a very short time, he saw the advantages that Revit had.

 

Will you get one-three man offices to convert?  That may be a stretch for those folks.  We set up a Revit Users Group in our area where our firm and the consulting structural firm presented our Revit coordination process.   A very bad winter night but we had around 100 attendees.  A lot of people interested....

Those are Dromedary - not t be confused with Bactrian.

I supposde that means they are single discipline vs multi-discipline.
