Constructive Change: Assembling Revit Models for Data Management Success

One of the biggest challenges faced by firms today is accessing and managing the multitude of model data generated on a project. Each week the team makes adjustments to the model and its information and you hope to capture those changes and understand how they affect various downstream activities. But even in the age of technology, most model changes are performed by old-fashioned page turns, which is too late and already out of date. Can you quickly and easily find changes between versions of a Revit software model? Can you easily coordinate and identify those changes in your Navisworks coordination model? What is the cost of the change you didn't catch? This in-depth session introduces effective practices for managing Revit model changes in coordination with the various software packages you may be be integrating with your Revit model for creating cost estimates, schedules, work breakdown structures, bid packages, and so on. Join us to understand how you can constructively manage for model change.


  • Learn how to use your model to track model and information changes throughout the project lifecycle
  • Understand effective practices for model use in downstream activities, particularly as progress effects the model and its data
  • Understand how to easily move information between Revit software model iterations in all phases to include design development
  • Learn how to identify solutions for managing external data sets with your Revit software model for greater efficiency in your modeling activities
