Arch discipline here.  I am about to restart a remodel project (first big revit project) that was put on hold.  The client operates a chain of good sized stores.  We are contracted to provide construction documentation of a model provided by them.  During our kick-off meeting they decided to update the model to save some money.  Prior to this we started populating sheets and views in the original model.  We were given the new model only to have the project put on hold again so they could find out ways to save even more construction costs.

 

I would still like to do as much possible before the project starts again.  In the meantime what would you all recommend on how we should proceed from our end?  The updates will be about a month away and our deadline will most likely remain as it was established in the larger scope. 

 

The project is in R/2018

 

Thanks in advance

Oh man this sounds like a simply dreadful arrangement.

There is only one 3D model and your client has ownership of it. Until you get ownership, I wouldn't do anything because if the 3D model ( or its content) moves, then this may affect what the viewports see. If the viewports move, then this may affect 2D content in those viewports. If the viewports and/or their 2D content change too much then they may undo work put into sheets.

I agree with Beau and I will add that your finish date needs to be amended to be based on when you OWNE the model.

 

I have some options that you might experiment with but they will result in more work. This will only work non referenced elements.

 

Make a copy of the model you already have (one) that has sheets and views.  Create a copy of that with a new name (two) and modify that somewhat to illustrate what might happen with a new model.  Link this model in to the correct location.  Turn off the link.  Now delete all model elements in your project from maybe a 3D view.   Turn on the link and bind it.  It will be a group so explode it.  Now see what you have left.
