Okay, so hopefully i can explain this correctly.  I need to move my whole building up out of the water table 18",  i need the site to stay where it is.  I pretty much have all elevations, sections, details created and detailed.  if i relocated the building which moves all of my details, sections etc. up with it,  when I go to do any spot elevations on my site plan they show elevations 18" above the contour right next to them.  the contour as showing up correctly.  i have tried adjusting the survey point up and then they show up correctly but then all of my levels show the wrong elevation,  moving the project base point  does the same thing.  what am i doing wrong?   if i just select all of the building componets and levels, there is no way that I can get all fo the detail/drafting elements to move at the same time.... any suggestions? 


Thank you!

At this point in time, simply do this:

  1. Goto an elevation view
  2. Dimension all level to levels and lock them
  3. goto the lowest elevation and move it up.

I always do the topo as a separate revit file and link it in. That way I can tag the site elevation which can be any number it wants to be without needing to have my first floor elevation be anything other than zero. I always do the building as one model and all site stuff as a separate model and link it in.

I’m perplexed: aren’t you just raising the building – not the site topography? In other words, raising the finished floor above grade? If so, why are your site spot elevations changing in relationship to these building elements? Seems odd. Maybe, I’m missing something, but couldn’t your issue be resolved by changing your spot elevations “Elevation Origin” ?
