Hello everyone.
I work as a CAD/BIM manager in a MEP engineering office. We are located in an area that is a bit more rural than most, so its only been in the last few years that we are really transitioning from AutoCAD to Revit, and we are starting to run into some problems on larger jobs.
For example, we are running toward a major deadline at the end of the week, so we are very much all hands on deck. There are times where we have three mechanical engineers, three electrical engineers plus myself working on a model at the same time, since the deadline is rushing toward us. This causes some small degree of slowdown (which we expected), however a couple times a week we run into an issue where someone tries to sync to central and the process gets stuck. It then becomes an ordeal of finding who in the model is the one "blocking the pipe" so to speak before everyone is able to finally sync and we can all move forward.
I know that this is a pretty large job (at least for us) and that seven people is alot, but I also know that buildings far larger than this one is made in Revit with teams far larger than our own. So is this just part of the deal with Revit, or is there something that larger groups are doing that we are not? How do your firms deal with larger projects?
Some notes:
  • We are all in the same version of Revit (2020.2 in this instance)
  • The building is a 300k sq. ft. school
  • Our central model size is about 650 mb
  • We are using add-in software from CTC, specifically the MEP Productivity Pack and the Project/BIM Manager Suite Tools
  • I know the "correct" way to handle this would be to stagger production and try to avoid deadline crunch, but its sadly unavoidable on at least this project (the architect is still making some changes to the building as recently as last week)
Thank you for any help or tips.

You should keep your architectural, electrical and mechanical models seperate and link in the other models.
