i was wondering if those of you generate 100% revit models and cd's are you retaining ownership of your revit models or is the client taking ownership of the model once a project is complete. From everything that i have been reading on BIM, one of the ways architects will be able to lever ROI is the use of these models by the client or others for purposes other construction documents. Do you feel that your models have any value beyond their intended purpose? Do you provide your models to engineers using Revit Structure at no charge to them or the client. i know in the autocad world a lot of companies will only provide pdf's if engineering is not being done in-house. does liability differ when providing revit models as appose to dwgs. i just wondering do a lot these type issues differ in the BIM world, because when done properly we are suppose to have a database of useable infomation. there is a lot written about it, but i haven't been able to find anything about some that leveraged a ROI beyond construction documents. any incite would be greatly appreciated, best regards, coreed,aia Post edited on 2006-04-05 11:46:59 Post edited on 2006-04-05 13:20:36

one thing we have talked about in my office is the fairly easy ability to do "as-builts" from the Revit model, if you maintain it through all of the RFI's & Construction process. it could the leverage to additional fees that you were refering to. we have yet to complete our first Revit project in CD's (still working on the permit set). but we are supposed to go in for permit in a couple weeks. i dont know if any of this helps, but this is what we have talked about here in LA.

We use 100% Revit from inception to CD's to TI build-out to BOMA calcs to lease management. We are exploring the link via Innovaya from Revit to Timberline to get our main client the data they need to estimate, sequence and build our Revit projects. Revit has expanded our business base and we are about to get rid of the two last remaining AutoCAD hold-outs in our office and be 100% Revit (10 person firm). Anyone looking for a Revit job in the Twin Cities let me know. Tom

Tom, I'm also using Innovaya and Timberline with Revit models. Got any wisdom to impart? Especially have you had any luck getting Innovaya to recognize "rooms" made in Revit?

We retain owndership of our designs, be it in Revit or in AutoCAD. The difference in media does not change our intellectual property rights. We usually charge for the cost of printing our drawings (both in Revit or in AutoCAD) to share with other consultants (engineers, MEP, etc). But we have not yet had any problems using all the same legal jargon with Revit that we used with AutoCAD.
