We have 3 shell office buildings on a site that my company designed about 10 years ago. The tenants in these buildings seem to be in a constant state of flux. The buildings were originally done in CAD back in 2000-2002, but I'm just now working on getting them into Revit as a number of tenants are changing/moving all at the same time right now, and I'm wondering what strategy should I follow for this work and for future tenant fitouts and revisions in this building.
So one building has 6 spaces. Current setup:
Space 1: Tenant A (not changing)
Spaces 2, 3, 4: Tenant B
Space 5: Tenant C
Space 6: Tenant D
Tenant B is moving out of 4, and taking over 5 and 6. Tenant D is moving out of 6 and over to 4. Tenant C is moving out of 5 and into the adjacent building.
My thought process was to model all the shell buildings and structure in a single Revit file, and store that file for use in all tenant fitouts of these buildings. Then for each tenant fitout, link in the shell buildings, and any other tenant fitout models we may have. That sounds pretty good to me.
The problem is that one fitout is going to require cutting a new door into the existing corridor wall of the shell building. I'd rather not have those corridor walls in any particular tenant fitout Revit file, as those walls are common between all tenants. So, what would you do?
