Ok, I am able to link a Revit Arch project within a MEP no problem.  In MEP you create "Spaces" for heat loss calculations, no problem.  You can get these spaces to have the same Room Name and Room Number as the Revit Arch plan, sure no probem.  My linked project is also checked for Room Boundry, ok no problem and my phases match with the Revit Arch.  What would cause 95% of the Spaces to complete this task of creating a space and receiving the Revit Arch names and numbers except 5% or 3 rooms.  Within these rooms the only difference is they have heigher ceiling spaces.  They are the same phase, same wall, etc.  The rooms are defined with room names and numbers within Revit Arch, but when a space is created or tried to create you receive UNOCCUPIED.  Anyone?

Could it be that in these spaces, the architect did not set his upper boundry of the spaces?

The Revit Arch does have an upper level to the boundry.  Also if the Arch room is copied to another location within the same project, a space will be created.

I wonder if your architectural model doesn't have two room objects stacked one on top of each other in the higher ceiling areas, one of which is named UNOCCUPIED and has no number.  If the high-ceiling spaces span two levels they may have done this to make it clear in the upper level plan that the area was open to the area below. 

A quick way to test my theory while sitting in your MEP project is to cut a section through one of the high ceilinged areas.  Then go to the section view, and click on the linked architectural model.  All the room objects within the section view will display as shown in the image below.  You can easily check for stacked or unusual shaped room volumes.  Just click away from the model or hit Escapte (ESC) to return to your previous display.  Option B would be to open the architectural model and see how they labeled both the lower and upper areas of the high-ceilinged rooms.

Might be that simple.  Let me know.
