Scheduling Apartments

I can’t take full credit for this post, as it was Becks Aaron Maller who reminded me of this, as it seems that I had wiped it from my memory. Neither the less, let me explain. More often than not, project teams working on residential schemes will use groups for apartment or flat layouts. If you apply a sound strategy, with clean interfaces between the elements in the group & the main structure of the building; this actually works well.

I also recommend to users that they don’t mirror the groups, instead they create left & right versions. In this instance, if I did require a handed version, I would group, name appropriately, mirror, then ungroup the mirrored version, regroup & rename as the handed version.

So you can then happily use your groups in your project as long as you are mindful of the limitations of groups. But what about scheduling? As it stands, in Revit 2013 we can’t schedule groups. So how do we get around this limitation, especially where you might have to schedule apartments or flat types in a project; a common practise in residential projects. The answer is to create a very simple generic model family which includes the mark parameter & ensure this is included as part of your apartment model group. It doesn’t have to be anything too spectacular, it can be as simple as a few symbolic lines which can be controlled & categorised with subcategories so it can be easily found, located & displayed. When the groups are placed in the project, you can use a multi category schedule & pick up the mark parameter from the generic model family. This is a great way to push data back into until group as well, by driving data from the schedule into the generic model family within the group.

In Revit 2014 we still can’t schedule groups! However some minor enhancements open up more opportunities to push data into elements within groups & allow us to schedule this data. The reason for this, is we can use the “new variance parameter by group” functionality in 2014. Let me explain how this could be used.

This example gives a brief description of the implementation process. Typically I would probably use a generic model family as well as shared parameters as my data collector in the group, but to demonstrate the process I will create simple in-place generic model family. Copied from David Light.

THIS LONDON LAW FIRM WENT TOTALLY MOBILE

THIS LONDON LAW FIRM WENT TOTALLY MOBILE

The international consulting firm, which offers law and tax advice, relocated their London office to Cannon Place over the summer. The new office coincided with a new, client-centric initiative – the company got rid of the traditional receptionist desk in favor of a “meet and greet” concierge approach, creating a space for more conversation between the company and the client.

With the new office came the addition of new technology. Employees have been issued a state-of-the-art laptop, wireless headset and 24” screen, enabling them to stay mobile and take advantage of the different types of workspaces throughout the office.

THIS LONDON LAW FIRM WENT TOTALLY MOBILE

Is there a mobile work or work-from-home policy or are most of the employees there all day every day?

The new technology used at Cannon Place allows for total mobility, enabling staff to work at their desks, move into a meeting room, or around the building, or work remotely.

CMS uses Microsoft technologies and designs to create a system of working that has never been seen before in the legal profession. Microsoft Lync is the centerpiece for unified communication in Cannon Place and provides voice and video calls, web meetings and instant messaging, facilitating communication internally and externally.

All fee-earners have been issued with the latest Surface Pro 3, a 24” screen and a wireless headset. Surface Pro 3s are one of the most advanced laptops available, and can function as a touch screen and an app-based tablet device.

Lync is a telephone system and all calls outside CMS go across phone lines. Internal calls across CMS’ offices go through their WAN network.

It allows staff to screen-share with colleagues and hold video conferences from their desks. Staff can also annotate documents directly onto their Surface Pro and send this to the Document Centre (DOCE) or to a secretary for processing.

Windows phones have replaced BlackBerry devices and are fully integrated with Lync as both are Microsoft products. The combination of Windows phones and Lync means staff are fully mobile, and able to take and join calls at their desks, in a break-out room, at home or wherever they happen to be. Copied from work design magazine.

ORANG+UTAN VEGETARIAN BAR IN KIEV

ORANG+UTAN VEGETARIAN BAR IN KIEV

Artem Vakhrin and Katya Zuieva of AKZ Architectura have designed a new vegetarian bar in Kiev, Ukraine. The client, Yulia Savlepova, had a strong vision and was the catalyst in the conception of ideas. The goal was to create an interior that should capture the essence of Orang+Utan bar – “the city is a new ‘jungle’ and people who live there are new ‘smart animals’ in need of a place to fill up with energy”.

White tiles were applied to the walls and ceilings, accentuated with a contrasting black ground. The jungle theme appears in the bathroom with an abundance of artificial plants and pink-coated fruit. Bizarre-i-o. But we kind of dig it. Copied from yellowtrace.
