I am working in China and a local REVIT expert is insisting that EVERY floor level, should be in a seperate file.  While i can see the merit of this if its a large project and there are indviduals working on a particular floor plan / model then linking them all together into a master file.   But they are insisisting all projects no matter of the size should have seperate floor level files etc. 

Apart from workflow, amount of available staff for a project etc  Are there any accepted work practices for seperating a project into many files. 

we do a lot of high rise apartment blocks (100 to 150m)  all with same floor plans at each level.  Personally I would do all this in one file, group each apartment type at the first main level, then copying up the building. 


It maybe this floor per file practice comes from the limitation of the computer system, I am not sure. 

any suggestions dialog etc   would be most welcome.


Many Thanks

Your co-worker does not understand Revit.   Only have seperate files for seperate disciplines, otherwise use worksets as required to control very large projects.

How many people work per floorplan? 10-20? Are we talking very large floorplans like hospital kind of project?
