I need each of my offices to be tagged and show square footage, occupancy, name, etc, but then, on top of that, I need a suite, which will include all the offices and reception.  If I just turn off all the room bounding properties of each wall, this obviously doesn't work for the individual rooms.  

 

So, in short: Is there a way to maintain the individual rooms in a suite, but create a tagable suite that includes all the rooms as well?

Thanks.

how about trying with area plan?

you can use area tag for suite of all rooms. and you can also create tags for each rooms in area plan.

otherwise, you have to make two differnet levels for one level, and use room seprators instead of walls, that makes possible you want.

I just wrote a blog post about this issue.

and there is a tutorial video.

Dingohot,

 

Thanks for your detailed response and video!  This does leave one issue, though: I need this space to schedule within the Level 01 sections of some schedules.  I'm excluding the individual rooms in these instances, too.  With this method, I can't get the suite to fall anywhere but under the new level name in the schedules.

 

Any suggestions?

I just thought Tagging was the most important thing for you at your first question.

if not, there are some other ways to achieve your goal. if making schedue is important, you can just use information parameters of room model. and at plan view, i don't think taging is the best option. if i were you, i'd try with room legend to explain zones which include mutiple rooms.

actualy, i'm not sure what's your purpose which matters everything. there're various ways to express or describe design of buiding in Revit, i'm quite sure there must be the best way to make what you really need.

Ah, well, I need to tag it and schedule it.  The end goal is to have an occupancy/ egress schedule which treats a group of offices as one suite.  This needs to be represented in the plan, as well.

I'm not sure what you mean by "information parameters of room model."  Is there a way to group the rooms? I know I can create a column parameter in the schedule to group rooms by some alphanumerical designation, and perhaps that's my best answer for scheduling. 

I would however like to be able to tag the suite, as you've illustrated, but have it schedule under the right floor.

Thanks for all your help.

If you add a suite name (or number) parameter to each room, then these can be grouped in the schedule.

WWHub,

Right, that's what I meant by "create a column parameter in the schedule to group rooms by some alphanumerical designation"

I think this method, in unison with dinghot's method for tagging will work.  I'll just have to tell the schedule to ignore the extra level.

 

Thanks all.
