working with Revit 2012

My question is it better to keep site plans and building plans separate or together as one plan?  What are most doing in this regard?

It depends on the size of the project, but for the most part I would keep the site plan and building plan as different files and link the site plan into the building model.

Were you talking plans or projects?  teafoe responded as if you meant projects

 

If you really meant plans, that really depends on the project and complexity.  We sometimes show first floor with the site showing ghosted and with separate site plans elsewhere.

I agree if you meant projects. If it's just a residence with a fairly simple site, then no reason not to keep it all together... If it's a large/complex site and a large/complex building, then I prefer linking. 

 

House- all one file

Apartment + Target- linked site

thanks for all this.....it is schools that I am working on.

so large I would think.  The examples were awesome.  hoping to get a grip on working with site plans soon as they really do step things up a notch or two....
