    Uniformat number for Rooms?

    We're working on updating our LOD document. Part of it is a spreadsheet listing the Uniformat numbers for all of the Revit Elements.
    Unfortunately, Uniformat lacks a code for Rooms.
    What have you used to classify them?

    I have not come across this problem before.
    Since rooms aren't part of the physical building, they don't fit nicely into Uniformat (they also don't appear in the specifications...). The best I can think of is to put them in C10 (Interior Construction), but you definitely don't want them to be confused with something that is real.

      Uniformat doesn't lack a code for rooms, that is not the intended purpose of Uniformat, which are elements.
      Walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, columns - those elements make up rooms / defined spaces.


      Table 13 - Spaces by Function
      is more likely what you're after.
      Unfortunately, you can't use the assembly code txt file to do this and you'd have to create your own parameter to hold that info.

      I'm intrigued how Table 13 can be used effectively on projects.

        (Revit) Rooms/Spaces get the appropriate code shoehorned into them using a SP as you suggest then someone using software that's actually useful for relating things spatially (thinking SMC here more than Navisworks) can do "validation" to ensure square pegs are filling square holes?

          I'm not familiar enough with SMC to understand how that would work. What type of validation could happen that couldn't happen in 2D?
