Question for you guys. Is there any way at all in handling two sets of revisions in a single project? A quick explanation:
These days, I'm seeing a lot of design/build projects through the GC go down the route of hiring a mechanical sub-contractor who has an in-house engineer to both be the engineer and the installation contractor. This is a great process that I wholly agree with. This allows the BIM process to be in a more natural environment, where the set of contract documents "is" the shop drawing. However, for permit, we don't show all the detail and views that we normally would on a shop drawing. We keep it clean and simple to portray the design and for pricing purposes as any consultant design engineer would. We then use a separate titleblock and sheet numbering/naming system for the shop drawings. It has worked out very well, until revisions come into play.
Basically there are addendums and revisions from the architectural team (which needs to follow their sequential numbering, description and date), and there are revisions for the shop drawings (to clarify to the duct manufacturer or equipment manufacturer necessary changes in the field). I cannot think of a way to handle both effectively on the same project.
Any ideas on this at all? Thanks in advance!
