    Multistory aparment block

    What is the best way to do the MEP in a multistory apartment block, where floors there is only 2 different floor levels throughout?

    so you dont have to keep doing loads of repetition and multiple changes if one floor changes.

      is there any BIM requirements saying you have to model every floor? if not Id just model the 2 floors & note on the title sheet that its floor 2, 4, 6 or what ever floor it is then for your kit id have a numbering system that has the floor in it something like RAD-10-01 where the 10 is the floor & 01 is the number.

        I'm in a similar place, with a similar problem. Your proposed solution is what I'm looking at doing. However, what happens if we have to account for equipment on the floors that haven't been modeled? Is there a means of following this process, yet scheduling all equipment that is on the identical floors that aren't modeled?

        One thing I have looked at is grouping the equipment modeled on one floor and copying this group onto the floors that share the same layout. Would you say that this is a feasible solution?

          that is brilliant Idea, and will more that use that.

          was thinking of using model groups, and copying the duplicate floors, but not sure how well that works?

            Yeah that would work for a total number of things, but you would not be able to give each an individual number

              Never tried multiple number of large groups so not sure if it would slow down the model at all

                I dont really like the idea of it, but wasnt sure what the best method is, im sure I read somewhere about exporting out the floor and linking it back in on multiple floors

                if anyone else has any input on this please let me know.

                  Linking it will be 100x the diaster that Groups will be.

                  Groups only *slow down* the project because there is suddenly that much more stuff in the model. Thats not a bad thing. Linking in floor plates? Will drag that model to a halt any time you go to create a new view, to the point that it wont be a good user experience.

                  And Linking wont solve your numbering/tagging issues. Youll have to call the equipment X01, and then schedule the linked file name for X.

                  Go with Groups.

                    I do something similar for Slab Edge & Coordination models... Provided that slab thickness and elevation apart are typical.
                    However, if you use this method be sure to make a note of the elevation of each floor.
