    Working on campus projects, strip malls, or any multibuilding project inevitably brings up discussion of how to manage the details. Often a major driving factor in choosing how to manage the details is whether all of the buildings will be included in one set of construction documents, or if each building will have a separate set of documents. Based on the project and which of these 2 approaches is selected, there are a number of strategies that can be implemented within Revit software to help streamline the construction document process. This class will dive into creating a single project file that only contains typical details, and how to link that file into all pertinent building models so that they all update seamlessly. This process isn't well known, but it can keep the liability aspect of a project to a minimum.

    • Learn how to link details so a single change will update all projects
    • Learn strategies for linking details for separate construction documents
    • Learn strategies for linking building for a single set of construction documents
    • Understand the pros and cons of each strategy
