Happy New Year all.

 

I have recently been informed AFTER I got the model in shape to begin CD's that we need to put a 6" concrete curb around the entire perimeter of the building.

 

My options are to A) offset all walls and put in concrete wall and align it. B) create a stacked wall with 6" curb. C) add the curb to bldg & wall sections and detail callouts.

 

I am leaning towards C as adding the curb would be important if we were doing material quantities, but this is our first project.  But if I WERE to elect option A (I hate stacked walls) what would be the best way in your opinion?

 

 RAC 2008 - Thanks!

Are you actually raising the building pad up 6" or just putting the walls on a 6" curb?

 

If it was my job I would actually add the curb (I hate stacked walls to) as a seperate wall, attach the top of the curb wall as well as the base of the stud wall to a refernce plane then everything should flex accordingly.

 

If you dont add the curb you risk not showing it in a section or someone missing it last minuet. If you do it as mentioned above all you have to do is adjust the refence plane if you need to go to a 4" or 6" curb. You could accomplish this by copy/ paste align into a new project, change the wall types and height and then drop back into your project if you have a ton of walls....

Thanks Nick.  yes, there will be a 6" curb around the perimeter of the building and "wet areas" such as restrooms.  The walls will sit on top of those.  It's a one-story 7000 sq ft footprint.  I can easily select all the perimeter walls and do a base offset from the ground floor of 6".  then draw a curb all the way around at slab edges.  I have to break the curb at doors unless I want to use stack walls - which i dont.  Then I can lock down the pad, curb, wall all to the grid.  Since it's a small building and our first time at this, I should model as much simple stuff that I can.  Thanks again for your help.
