Can anyone recommend an architecture firm that they've worked with that uses Revit for retail roll-out?  I'm finding a lot of architecture firms who use Revit for large projects like commercial office buildings, educational facilities, etc. But I'm having a hard time finding firms that use it for smaller retail roll-out projects.  Any reccomendations would be very helpful!

We use Revit for all of our projects. 


The question is:  What is the "Level of Detail" required?

We use revit for everything now -- From tiny canopy remodels, to single story 8,000 square foot libraries, to 30,000 sq foot office buildings.   We normally stay away from smaller projects unless its for our favorite employers, like the state university.   But revit would work just as well for a small scale modeling -- BIM's benefits are just way more obvious on larger projects.

When you say retail roll out, I assume that you mean Tenant Improvements. Inside the existing building shell. These can be done rather easily, although if you want very precise detail on lighting, such as fixtures it could get a little expensive to make all the lighting fixtures, and special cabinetry. I have done a limited amount for a restaurant made many commercial kitchen appliances etc. See the attached. Some manufacturer's are making models of their parts now, but not all are. So the ones you really want, that don't have models as yet you have to make yourself. Not impossible but some can be a little time consuming. To give you an idea, this took me about a week to do. It is preliminary only and the 3D views are not rendered.
