Working on campus projects, strip malls, or any type of multi-building project inevitably brings up the discussion of how to manage the details. Often a major driving factor in choosing how to manage the details depends on whether all of the buildings will be included in one set of construction documents or if each building will be a separate set of documents. Based on the project and which of the 2 previously mentioned approaches is selected, there are a number of strategies that can be implemented within Revit-based software to help streamline the construction document process. This class covers a few scenarios of multi-building projects and discusses which approach to detail management may be the most appropriate. In addition, the class reveals and discusses the pros and cons to each approach so that you will be able to apply the most appropriate strategy to your own multi-building projects.
- Create a separate detail file that can be linked into multiple files
- Use strategies for linking details for separate construction documents
- Use strategies for linking buildings for a single set of construction documents
- Explain the pros and cons of each strategy
Better known as “The Revit Geek”, Brian has spent more than 25 years in the AEC industry, more than 10 of which have been focused on Revit and BIM. After nearly a decade of working with Architects and Engineers to advance BIM in their companies, Brian started his BIM consulting company in 2011 to focus on custom high-level training and mentoring. Brian has clients all over the US and Canada that generally tolerate his sarcastic nature in exchange for his wide breadth of BIM knowledge. Brian showcases his love of talking about Revit, or maybe just his love talking, in a monthly light-hearted, occasionally irreverent, free Q&A webcast, Revit Radio.
