I have been working on a substantially large condo project in Revit by myself for a while, but am know at the point where I will be handing off the model to another firm to do the finishing touches and then the ongoing work during construction. The firm that I am handing it over to is just beginning to adopt Revit, and they have very basic infrastructure (one licensed workstation, and the rest of the office is CAD). So needless to say I will be helping them get their Revit operation going. The problem is that I have only been working on my own in Revit thus far and as a result I have never delved into worksharing, etc. What is the best way to manage and collaborate on this model if the majority of the work will be done by one guy at this new firm, and possibly me for a few touch ups, etc. Should I look into work sharing, and if so how would I implement it ( ex where would the local file reside). Or should he just work on the model, and FTP me the file if need be? Sorry for such a long post, any advice is greatly appreciated.

There are advantages to using worksharing even with only one user so I suggest you use that.  However if you do that, the concern will be are you working within the same network. 


There is a method of being able to work out of network in workshared projects but there is an opportunity to mess things up.  Really no different though than if you work in a copy of a non-workshared file and they work in their own copy.  You will have issues in both cases of coordinating changes.  So establish a good procedure in either case.
