Here's my situation:

I have a client that we designed a large mulifunctional musuem/office building in Acad. I wanted to do it in Revit but the project was just to big for my first revit project. Especially since it involved an existing old building and 3 different additions each with its own structural system....

Anyway the project is going to receive a platnium LEED rating and I now want to create a Revit model and use it for facility management. The dream is to install sensors throughout the facilites systems and be able to have a computer display in the museum that shows ongoing data of how the systems are performing as one of the primary displays. We have solar, wind, high efficiency hvac, plumbing (water retention, reusage, roof garden) high efficiency lighting, fancy insulated concrete sandwich walls.....

I know they have monitoring systems that facility managers use to measure the production and efficiency of their systems, and their costr. docs were created using revit,

 but are they using the revit model in their life cycle process???

Any help would be greatly appreciated, or providing me with some resources to research..

Bones, That sounds awesome!! I'd love to hear more about the project, and congrats on a Platinum rating! I'm an architecture student and have very superficially dealt with some of your issues. My instinct would be to load Revit/CAD into Virtual Environment, set up your materials, and run simulations. I guess for real time you might be able to sync weather data? I wish I could be more help. I hope someone else can can point you (and me) in the right direction as I'd love to learn how far Revit can be pushed.

 Best of luck, Tim 


I do architecture
