Conversion of CAD to 3D Models for Campus

Customer Challenge

New Hanover Regional Medical Center is moving their entire facility (almost 2 million sq. ft.) from CAD . DWG files to Revit 3D Models, allowing them to incorporate BIM into their workflows. The reason they are making this move is to be able to provide more information to maintenance staff to improve efficiency. However, the facilities department is a small department and with only one person who could use Revit, it would take too long to convert the files on their own.

Project Goals

The goal was to convert all the CAD . DWG drawings that existed for New Hanover Regional Medical Center Phase 2 & 3 to Autodesk Revit models at LOD 200. Altogether there were two sets of . DWG files of approximately 10 files each that would be converted.


Models were created in Autodesk Revit that included interior walls, doors, windows, roof and floors, as well as structural elements like slabs, roof, concrete walls and columns.

Business Outcome

The Autodesk Revit models are now being used when working with architects who will be able to populate them with the appropriate information for the Facilities and Maintenance departments. Furthermore, as New Hanover Regional Medical Center renovates their facilities, they can keep up with the changes much more effectively as a result.


By moving to Autodesk Revit, New Hanover Regional Medical Center is building a foundation for the future that will make management of their facilities easier and more efficient.
