    Post Working with multiple buildings

    Hi there, would be great if anyone could help me. First post here!

    I'm working in a project with container buildings.. I must present all of then together in the same sheet and separated in different sheets. Also, in the schedule it must give the quantities of the containers differently, so I can get show the cost of each.

    How can I get this type of segregation on Revit?

    Any suggestion will be very much appreciated!

    What are your deliverables? What stage is your project at? Bit hard to answer without some real information.
    But as a guide, it could be...overall sheets in federated model. Container sheets in container files.
    Depending on how you want your schedules...schedules in each container file, or schedules in federated model filtered or sorted by link.

    Ps welcome to the forum!

    Thank you sir!

    Well, this project is in the beginning designing stage, just simple architecture by now.

    The idea is to build a house complex all in containers. Kitchen would be one, the bathroom another, rooms... And the client want the cost estimate for each container (this includes covering, pluming...). He wants to work in a production line in his fabric and by separating each container sheet, it would be easier for he to assemble indoors and when finished, take to the site.

    However, for presentation to the final costumer and containers assemble in the site (after the foundation is done), I have to show the entire project, witch is 10-15 containers.

    All of this is for the first house, latter houses I can link then and present the housing complex with links.

    So, the schedules can be in each container file. No problem! The thing is that I would have more then 10 links in Revit and probably my pc wont handle.

    Ps.: each container will have the following disciplines: architecture, pluming, electrical and structural..

    Sir Elton, thank you for the answer and I hope to have clarified more.

    I´d be tempted to create each container as a group. I´m assuming that you´ll, at some point, need to create openings in different locations, depending on the overall layout of the containers. Scheduling could be handles by parameters.
