Revit Conversions for Keewatin-Patricia District School Board

The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board is a public school board that serves the communities of Northwestern Ontario, Canada.


The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board came to DedON looking to update, consolidate, and organize their various CAD, Revit, and Matterport plans into accurate Revit models. They were looking to improve accuracy for fire evacuation/ lockdown plans, update student capacities, facility cleaning/ management budget and plans. Revit models provide the information and analytics necessary for them to best serve their communities.

DedON’s Response

KPDSB provided our team with various outdated and incomplete records including CAD, Revit, and Matterport files. Our team was able to identify, determine and capture missing data to complete updated Revit models for each school. The team developed a method to identify floor material square footage data into schedules in Revit to present the data in a user-friendly way for KPDSB.


KPDSB now has uniform and user-friendly Revit models for their teams to extract information they need to make decisions about each school. Their teams are now able to appropriately provide schools with facilities budgets and ensure safety with updated fire evacuation/ lockdown plans. These Revit models will continue to provide valuable information to KPDSB when making decisions about future renovations, student resources, staffing, districting, addressing new codes and standards, etc.

If you are looking to update, consolidate, and organize your models, DedON has the tools and capacity to help you accomplish your goals.
