The Los Gatos Library: Using Revit from Concept to Construction

Jason Barish, Assoc. AIA and Abraham Jayson of Noll & Tam Architects will discuss the use of Revit for the recently completed LEED Gold Los Gatos Library. This presentation will explore the use of Revit for the entire five year project timeline, from conceptual massing studies through construction administration. The Library has many unique design features such as a cantilevered teen “tree-house,” an undulating star-scape ceiling in the children’s area, and thirty foot tall exposed custom steel columns in the open atrium. They will present their design and documentation process, including both the successes and the failures, and more importantly what they learned going forward.

Who Should Attend
Architects, project managers, and designers seeking to maximize their use of Revit for a complete project workflow.
