Peter Napier is a Chartered Building Surveyor with RICS Accreditation in Building Conservation. Located in the beautiful Shropshire Hills he has been handling conservation work since 1991 but has always worked on “old” buildings. When it comes to renovation work it seems people often see 3D as being too rigid, time consuming and not flexible enough to use. However, since purchasing Revit Architecture Peter has totally disproved this.
When the practice was first established Peter was using AutoCAD LT for all of his work and although he had toyed with the idea of moving over to 3D and had even looked at TurboCAD he had decided that there was no real incentive to move to 3D and he would stick with AutoCAD LT. All that changed when one of his clients, Dogs Trust, who were already working in 3D using AutoCAD Architecture asked him to design a new rehoming centre. Now he had to make the move from a commercial perspective.
Whilst investigating 3D options Peter approached Cadspec for a demonstration of Autodesk Revit Architecture. He was so impressed with it that he suggested Dogs Trust also had a demonstration and equally impressed both companies decided to purchase it. Peter also purchased a Subscription contract and training and has really felt the benefits of doing so, together with the support he has since received from Cadspec. He has since invested in additional training to cover more advanced features such as family creation and rendering which he says is "excellent value for money".
"I don't think there's a single thing where I have thought 'Revit won't be able to do that,' and there's nothing that it hasn't been able to handle."
