so after what seemed like the longest flight ever, i’m in my room in adelaide, i’ll be here for the week to help out on the adelaide oval project. pretty big confidence/ego boost on this one, i was told that ‘there is no other person in the company that we would rather have work on this project’

to further bolster my confidence, shortly before christmas one of our external trainers came by the office to help everyone out. he pointed out that i was at the same level as him and he’s extremely impressed with my knowledge, ability and my willingness to train others in the office. he pretty much told me to leave engineering and come be a revit trainer. i wouldn’t mind doing a job like that, i love to help people out and push everyone’s boundaries as to what they’re capable of.

we’re in a joint venture (ugh) with another company, however we’re the lead on hydraulics, which is what i do. it all starts tomorrow morning with a meeting with the other company’s head revit tech guru, i will be our representative. pretty stoked with that considering i’m not the tech leader. our tech leader is based in christchurch and i was told in confidence (and now its all over the interwebs) that our team doesn’t want our tech guy anywhere near this project as he has embarrassed us on a few projects previously with his lack of.. err.. tech. the sentiment toward this guy is the same with project leaders and management within brisbane, he made a presentation to one of the world’s leading construction companies that use revit (if not the leading company – btw, they lead in thier use of revit, they’re not necessarily the best construction company)

from there i have to help setup the revit model for the project, get everyone on the right track, create new content, detail intricate plant rooms and other co-ordination intensive areas and possibly throw some training in the mix as well.

so here is to an exciting week of work, hopefully i’ll be coming down here again in the future to help out, as i’m wanting to push as the leading tech expert for revit mep (mechanical, electrical & plumbing) within the company, so far it sounds like i’m heading down the right path. patience will be involved however as our hydraulics team australia wide is lacking in numbers, heres hoping that gets sorted out and i can focus on being the revit guru that i aspire to be.

also, just rubbing it in slightly, my incredibly comfortable room
