Our firm is slowly adopting to Revit, and although we are not struggling too much with creating structural framing plans and section details we have huge issues with modeling site safety and demolition plans.

These plans on AutoCAD, typically have a survey type plan with all the site safety elements, then succesive floor plans (in reverse) showing the engineered/controlled methods of demolition.

So a roof demolition (Plan, Section & Elevation) would have the site safety elements at that floor and keynote tags pointing to a demolition procedure. So on - so forth.

On AutoCAD, we would use SSM to acheive this, and with every successive sheet/floor we would show the upper floors (or elements) removed.

How can we use revit to do the same? The use of Phases would be ideal, but how do we go around using the tool going in the opposite time line (Construction and adding floors).

Any insight on how other firms achieve this would be extremely helpful and any answeres would be appreciated.

 

At this point we have a complete model with all the site safety elements and surrounding public/private properties, we just need to populate the different views - documenting the above described steps.

 

Thanks

Your process is not clear but I'll have a go at it.

 

You could do all elements to be deleted on a level in it's own workset and only show the remaining worksets in plans and sections.

Ill explain a bit more:

We have a model of a building that is to be demolished. Our deliverable will have to be a comibnation of:

(Plan, Section and Details) showing the site safety elements (scaffolds, etc) and equipment used for demolition (mech. equip with min. working distances, etc) - At each floor.

Our sheets will show the full building at the beginning, but as the demolition set progresses, we are documenting all elements (Minus) the elements removed from the floor above.

We havent thought of using worksets, would you mean to have a work set for each floor (or unique floor if we have floors that are duplicated in geomtry, and method of demolition)?

 

Hope that helped explain better

How do I use worksets if I want the site safety elements also shown (throughout all phases), think construction fences, sidewalk sheds and scaffolding (etc).

I am almost tempted to just - save as - the model with the elements of the previous floors removed, and keep doing so ending with several models
