Merry Christmas from RUGwell

December 1, 2015

Our final meeting of the year is now behind us. Thanks again to ProductSpec for once again putting on a fitting end of year break up.

Thanks also to our speakers;

Jason Howden for a very interesting and inspiring Christchurch Justice Precinct case study, its good to know what can be achieved here and now.

Michael Warwick for an equally interesting and very useful presentation about Revit data corruption.

Micheal presentation was based on this document;

It was great to see some new faces, especially MEPers, do come back for more next year!


Special thanks to our eight host venues this year ,who not only provided use of their facilities, but also provided snacks and refreshments, keeping RUGwell free for everyone.

This year we met at;

Wellington City Council (twice)


Stephenson & Turner


Designgroup Stapleton Elliott

Norman Disney & Young


Productspec (twice)

We have at least one new venue in the pipeline for next year, so get in early if you want to host!


Thank you very much to those who took the time effort and risk to share your expertise and experiences. Without you there would be no RUGwell (sorry I don’t have a comprehensive list of this years speakers).

We are always keen to hear a new perspective on things Revit and BIM. So if you’d like to boost your industry reputation and practice your technical presentation skills in a low impact environment, feel free to volunteer.

There is no level of experience requirement as we like to have presentations aimed at various levels, and your RUGwell committee is happy to help out with topic suggestions from our list.

Merry Christmas.

We hope you get you projects finished in time, have a safe and relaxing break, and return to work invigorated for a 2016 packed with BIM awesomeness.

Keep an eye on the blog as there may be a few posts between now and our first meeting of 2016 in February.
