Standardizing the U.S. Army Corps Engineers Revit Template

Customer Challenge

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers needed to standardize their Revit 2016 template which had become modified, resulting in inconsistencies. These inconsistencies resulted in different groups using different versions of the template which needed to be updated and standardized. Not only did USACE need to update the template, but so did their extended ecosystem of consultants and the projects they were working on. Since the older Revit 2016 template had been modified by various consultants and on projects, the USACE was looking to update the template and then standardize within their organization.

Project Goals

The USACE engaged Autodesk Solution Provider Applied Software to leverage their experience and expertise to create updated standards that would allow them to quickly build the updated templates based on best practices. The first phase of the project was to review their existing base template and Revit standards, merge some of the disjointed standards, and make recommendations on improvements to the templates. Once they upgraded the existing base template, the next templates they updated were architecture, structural, mechanical, and electrical. These updates allowed USACE to take advantages of the improvements in Revit from 2016 – 2021 and modernize.


Applied Software aligned the USACE standards with current product features to move to a newer version and become up to date to make their templates work well with the updated standards. In addition, they solidified and defined those standards, so they are standardized throughout the entire organization

Business Outcome

Applied Software successfully completed the project to upgrade standards and templates in record time, in support of USACE as well as ultimately positioning themselves to be able to provide ongoing support to USACE. USACE gained a simplified template that was updated and standardized. Applied Software removed some of the extra templates in Revit that had been built in overtime and were causing it to bog down.


Applied Software worked with USACE to execute on standardizing the templates in 7 months’ time. This would have taken the Army Corp up to two years, due to the complexity of the project. Applied Software was able to achieve the goal of the project in record time. Because of the dedicated team at Applied Software, the USACE moved forward with additional phases of the project.
