Campus documentation was a Summer Intern project to convert all Andrews University buildings into Revit Models and place fire, safety, and security, equipment within the BIM model. This complex, Burman Hall, was my project. Blueprints were only available for the original four buildings. I converted the new fifth tower from CAD floor plans, numerous site visits for field measuring, and photographs. The entire project was completed in just 117 hours. Construction knowledge and familiarity with blueprints aided the quick processing time. Additionally, site visits led to the discovery of many design changes that were not in the blueprints for the original four buildings, which, I corrected giving the university an accurate set of prints.
