Revit and Dynamo for Interior Design
A common challenge for an interior design firm is working as a subconsultant for an architecture firm and keeping room names, numbers, and finish information updated to populate room finish schedules. This is easily managed if you use Dynamo software to read information from the linked model and synchronize information in the interior design model. Another common struggle is coordinating annotated information, room finish schedules, and material finish legends. A number of work-arounds exist, though all produce complicated workflows and still leave a disconnect between what is actually modeled and what is documented. A similar method to syncing room information from a linked model can be used to read finish information in a Revit model to populate the room finish schedule. This presentation will be a combination of Microsoft PowerPoint and a live demonstration of techniques that BSA LifeStructures interior designers employ to improve the process of designing and documenting in Revit software with assistance from Dynamo. We'll use PowerPoint to diagram the flow of information from phase to phase, or modeled content to construction drawing, followed by live demonstrations using Revit and/or Dynamo. Topics will include synchronizing room finish schedules with modeled materials, connecting rooms from linked models, coordinating items from linked models such as signage for doors or light fixtures, coordinating data external to Revit such as room data sheets or FFE requirements, and working through the design phases. This class will also cover finish drawings, signage drawings, and furniture drawings, with a focus on synchronization of information for producing a visualization-ready model while reusing those efforts to produce construction documents.

Using Revit to Deliver Large Residential Projects: Circus West at Battersea Power Station Case Study
This presentation will look in detail at how a complex large-scale residential building can be delivered using Revit, with an understanding of overall modelling strategy, data management, and drawing output workflow. The Circus West project represents that first phase of the Battersea Power Station masterplan, and comprises of 752 apartments over 17 storeys, above a mixed-use podium. The building has a 350-metre-long footprint which wraps around the Power Station building, and is articulated as 2 stacked tapering glazed ribbons. In response to the original client brief, the building has a large number of residential typologies, with a mix of 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments, townhouses, and penthouses. The project was transitioned into Revit in 2013, with the intention to build a model for the output of GA plan scale construction drawings, scheduling and coordination with the structures and M&E consultant team. The project was not only the largest residential scheme that the practice had delivered to date, but also the first to be produced using Revit, and as a result, initial strategies had to be quickly developed and implemented in order to construct the model. The design work was split between the practiceÍs 2 offices, with the interior fit out of the residential element development by the Manchester office team, and Shell, Core and Podium developed by the London office team. The development of the interior fit out packages for the residential element proved to be the most challenging area of the project to set up in Revit, due to the large quantity of apartment types (over 200 unique layouts). In order to minimise file sizes, and repetition of modelling, a systems of nested Revit models and arrangement files had to be set up to enable drawing sheet output. The level of detail in the apartment models required careful consideration to strike a balance between information required for outputs and minimal file sizes. As part of this, a strategy for the use of families for complex interior fit out elements the within apartment models was developed. Following the BPS project, there are many lessons learnt that can be applied to future large residential Revit projects. This includes developing a strategy for how a project with numerous apartment types can be broken down into manageable elements, with an allowance for flexibility in the set up as the project progresses.
