Job Duties

We are currently searching for a Revit Specialist to help in the design and creation of machine shops.

The Revit Specialist will assist in creating three dimensional representations of machine shops in Revit. The role involves using an architect-supplied building model and adding hundreds of APROE “machine models” to create a detailed representation of the space. It will also involve creating new machine models for items we do not currently have in our library. The Revit Specialist will work with project managers to determine where the models should go and to determine what is needed in the space. The final output will be a series of annotated drawings that include relevant tags, utility data and notes. The Revit Specialist will make use of established templates to create the drawings and go through a multi- step review and revision process before drawings are submitted.

The Revit Specialist must be comfortable working in a team and taking direction from a number of different voices. He or she must also be comfortable working within the provided drawing formats in order to match a presentation style that is already being utilized. When creating new machine models, the Revit Specialist will work with manufacturers drawings or brochures that will be provided by project managers. The person in this role should be prepared to do basic online research to answer any
questions about those models. The position will occasionally require visiting a job site and measuring a machine in order to collect the specifications needed for creating a model of a new machine.

APROE is a small company, so the ability to think on one’s feet is key. Knowledge of construction, architecture, and equipment are a plus. APROE seeks candidates that are upbeat and communicative, drama averse, self-starting, self-directing, and eager to learn. The candidate must be equally comfortable in a shop and client development setting. The Revit Specialist will report to the Project Lead, and will be part of a team of 3-5 other Project Managers, Researchers, and CAD specialists all
working together on a shared project. This is a contract position that will be part time to full time, depending on project demands. The position will be active for the duration of the project.

Initial Duties:

• Create project files that merge architect-supplied building files with internal machine families contained in our library
• Create new families for machines that are not contained in our library
• Work with project managers to create layouts of various floors in the project file
• Create sheets for individual machine families utilizing an existing template
• Create sheets that show overall layout and utility schematics utilizing an existing template and adhering to an established format

Job Requirements
