Meet WHRUG – the Wood Harbinger Revit Users Group

What do you think of when you think of engineering?  Blue prints? Pocket protectors? Slide rules? White shirts and blue ties?  These items may have symbolized the way engineers did business in the past, but in recent years they have gone the way of the dodo. High powered computers, calculation programs, and even casual attire (at least in the Pacific Northwest) have replaced these obsolete items and become the new normal.

The same is happening to programs such as 2D CAD. BIM, the 3D successor of 2D CAD, now has the momentum to dominate the engineering world. In an effort to stay on the cutting edge, Wood Harbinger has been leading the way in using BIM/3D modeling programs, primarily AutoCAD’s REVIT, in our designs. Our BIM Manager, Andy Brown, has strategically launched a new program aimed at sharpening our skills and getting everyone up to speed. This program is called the Wood Harbinger Revit User Group (WHRUG).

What his choice in acronym lacks in excitement, his program makes up for. The purpose of the WHRUG is to provide an open forum for technical discussion, standards and workflow creation, and change management. This collaborative group of REVIT users includes members from each of Wood Harbinger’s discipline groups. We are championing the cause for REVIT acceptance, implementation, and proficiency throughout the firm. The group’s mission is to take our company successfully into future of engineering.

It is an exciting time to be at Wood Harbinger as we are leading the way into the future with Andy as our captain!
