    Hospitality buildings?

    So this is for you hospitality type folk where you can have multiple levels, and maybe 4-5 different suites each level...

    How do you schedule your doors and finishes?

    Figure the Suite (or room) has its own number...but then in the case of the suite you have rooms as well (living, bath, kitchen, etc)..
    Do you show the finishes for all the rooms or just specific ones for that suite? Same for doors, show all or just for an individual suite type?

    Basically I am working on an apartment building and we are trying to come up with the best scenario for scheduling. Our usual method is to schedule each individual room and door in the entire building, but in this case there will be a lot of repetition.

    Suggestions?

    We do a lot of aparments and hotels and schedule the unit doors as a letter:

    A - main door
    B - door 1
    C - door 2
    D - patio door
    etc

    These doors are only tagged on the enlarged plans except the entrance door which may or may not be on the floor plan depending on the project. I added a new paramater for those doors so I can sort my schedule.

    Common area doors get a number that corresponds the room number

    101 - lobby
    102 - reception
    103A - office
    103B - office
    etc

      I agree with cellophane, by type for unit doors. Except on the entry I number it, since its typically numbered with the unit number. So basically all the doors in the corridor have a number, once in the room all the doors have a type. But I've done it exactly how Cellophane describes too.

        What about the finishes for each room in a unit?

          If you have some hotel prototype drawings I'd look at how they do it. I would post some but they are pretty tight on control and I don't want to violate any NDA clauses.

          The prototype set I'm working on now has units broken down by type (King, Double Queen etc) with a breakdown that way, then general public spaces are scheduled normally.

          King
          entry ----
          bath ----
          closet ---
          bedroom ---

          101 Lobby -----
          102 Reception ---

          etc

            Yeah, same issue...can't share..

            But basically we have multiple suites...some of them is just a bedroom and bathroom (studio) and some have multiple bedrooms, a living room, bathroom and kitchen. Since some of the rooms have different finishes I was trying to figure out how to create rooms finishes for them...

            Hmm...I wonder if I can create rooms for the suites themselves in one phase and the rooms for the individual rooms within the suite in another phase...the walls within the suite would be built in the newer phase so that the rooms have boundaries....but the primary suite walls in the previous phase...

            That way everything would schedule properly.

              You could schedule your building units as one room with non-bounding walls and create a legend phase with your enlarged plans, although that might lead to coordination issues down-stream. Or just use room lines on your enlarged plans. Are your units grouped or linked in?

                The walls are placed within the model...

                It sounds like we don't have to worry about multiple finishes, they are the same throughout...so that made things easier...

                As for the doors it looks like the interior doors will have types and the rest are numbered...

                So far that is....lets see what the PA has to say about it...

                  How did the rooms within rooms work out? I'm messing around with a finish schedule right now and need to do something similar.
