Near the end of SD, it was determined that we need to develop a 3-Story and 4-story version of a project.  The additional story will be an add alternate, and with its acceptance, it would be located on the 3 floor.  Acceptance of the alternate floor would also shift the basic layout of rooms to the 4 floor.  The alternate 3 floor will be mostly open floor space for a future tenant build-out.

How would you recommend organizing the Revit model for this application - I am relatively new to Revit and although I understand the object oriented concepts and operation of the program fairly well, I am not sure of the best way to organize working on the project.

Any level of help is appreciated thanks!

You would do this using design options.  Read up on them in your HELP.

I would reccomend using phases. I have had the most success going this route for alternates. I created everything in the base bid in the "new construction" phase and add an "alternate" phase after new construction for the items that are part of the alternate. Then you can use the phase filters to everything visualy apprear the way you would like.

I agree with teafoe.  This is exactly what design options was meant to be used for.
