Our firm just began using Revit.  I'm building timeshare units while my co-workers are building the skin, sweeps, verticle circulation ect.  I want to know how other firms are naming wall types.  I have 4 verions of walls w/ tileSad1) mtl stud 3 5/8", mr gyp bd 5/8", tile 1/2" - (2) gyp bd 5/8", mtl stud 3 5/8", mr gyp bd 5/8", tile 1/2" - (3) gyp bd 5/8", mtl stud 1 1/2", mr gyp bd 5/8", tile 1/2" (4) tile 1/2", gyp bd 5/8", mtl stud 6", mr gyp bd 5/8", tile 1/2" @ 38" high.

This is in addition to 10 other types of walls.  I was thinking of somehow tying them to the parition types sheet that will have the section detaill & UL assemblies.  But my PM suggested that would be too complicated.

How detailed should I get, if I have 3 types of tile would it be worth it to include that in the wall type?

Is a partial wall a unique wall type?

We use a system like the following:

Usage - Framing Material - Framing Size - Exterior Finish - Interior Finish - Fire rating (if applicable)

For example, a 2x4 interior partion is labeled as

Interior - Wood - 2x4 - 5/8" Gyp - 5/8" Gyp

A two hour wall is labeled the same:

Interior - Wood - 2x4 - (2) 5/8" Gyp Board - (2) 5/8" Gyp Board - 2 Hour

That is for naming.

 

Just a thought though, you could just do a wall sweep of the tile on the walls you want. I did that once with slat board in a retail store.
