Okay, so we have a large, (100,00 sf) 4 story U-shaped building that we are working on with another office. The "plan" is that our offices would collaborate on SD (done, mostly) and their office would take 80% of DD and we would handle 20% of DD and all (or most) of CD. We're trying to work out how we should divide worksets and or links, should we:  A)   Try and split the building up via worksets and put the central on an FTP site (seems slow and dangerous)  B)   Split the building into linked files, Shell and Core (we take Core, they take Shell, and have separate inter-office worksets for our own workflow)  or  C)   Split the building into linked files based on building "parts" (they take two parts of the 'U' we take the other)

Has anyone dealt with a similar problem? Any ideas or feedback is welcome, Thanks in advance!

hey,

avoid trying to use different worksets method, it's very messy.

the best option for you guys will be to divide the building as in your option B, treat the other office like you would an external consultant and just link eachother's files...

You are going to find that there is no easy answer to this.  If you use linked files, you can't cross the boundry for view references.  In addition, even though all elements can schedule in one file, they can't be cross tagged.  So the consequence is do you keep seperate sheets and plot from two files? 

 

Sorry, but I think you do use worksets but you really have to work at it.  The shell should be in one worset and only one office controls it.  The interior elements could be broken up by levels and each office works on seperate levels.  Views too would be "assigned" to the correct office.  

 

Really all gets very messey.
