I began the renovation project prior to the site information being available. Now that it is, My first floor is set at 0'-0" and the actual floor level is 1022' 1". What is the most efficient way to merge the two files without losing constraints?

How far are you on your project? How many level does your new design propose? I would assume that it is a site drawing in CADD that you import into Revit. You can approach the problem with the following steps: 1. You need to create a workset for your XRefs. You will put the CADD drawing in this workset. Since your first floor is set at 0'-0" when you built it in Revit, you can attach the site drawing on to the first floor right underneath your first floor plan. You only turn on the XRefs workset in views that need site information. You only show site information in Site Plan, Landscaping Plans and Utility Plans. It does not matter how high the elevation is. You only view these information in plan orientation. 2. To reflect the actual floor levels, you have to set the elevation height according to the civil drawing. This can be done in easily in Revit. For example, if you have 3 levels in your project and all elements and families are related to these level, you need to set the highest level to the new calculation. Then you can adjust the rest of the levels with the new heights. By doing it this way, you can show elevation heights correctly in elevation views In our office, we take it further by asking civil engineer to provide us with a point file beside CADD file. We can built Revit topography from there easier. Once we get the Revit topo, we put the XRef aside and turn it off. We have designs projects on steep hillsides and have our buildings set on the topo. We've built retaining walls to follow the contour of the site. I hope that my tip works out for you. We have used it for your projects. Let me know how it goes.

I'm fairly well into Design development. So there are levels other than floor. Also a lot of wall constraints. I tried changing from the top down and ended up with a lot of constraint violations. I didn't know if there was a way to "copy as" and perhaps reset the whole thing. I may have to bite the bullet and let the constraints go and make sure everything gets corrected. Thanks

A good start is to relocate your project. Go to a elevation view then use the menu "Tools -> Project Position/Orientation -> Relocate this project" Then you click on your "first floor" level and then you write in 1022' 1" /Jocke
