    Revit OpEd: Demo Is Not a Phase

    At least in Revit's "world".

    This is a common point of confusion when people start using Revit phasing tools, real versus virtual, Revit's "reality" versus real "reality".

    Demo is not a phase in "Revit land". It's a phase in "People land" because people do demolition things before some other construction things. Revit however considers demolition to occur during the new work. You have an existing building and then do new work...demolition is no different from erecting a new wall to Revit. The phasing tool is focused on showing things graphically not how we "people" think of managing our construction tasks. I can do demolition in one room while someone is painting new paint on a wall in another.

    There's nothing wrong with thinking about demolition and temporary shoring as "phased" tasks. Just don't do it (by creating a demo phase) and expect Revit to show things correctly, graphically at all times. Eventually something won't work, display/schedule correctly.
