    Default Internal Coordination

    I wanted to share some insight about something we do internally here and maybe get some other opinions.

    We are doing our own internal coordination using Revit. Basically one of our architect will open an already setup NWF and run the preset clash. Then will communicate the result to the team and we try to fix it. We thought it would be easier of our files were cleaner before we pass it on to discipline coordination

    So right now we are looking for some basic stuff
    Structure (Columns/Framings) vs Facade
    Floors vs Facade
    Doors vs Walls
    Stairs vs Floors



    2 questions
    1 - What do you think of the idea of having arch doing that?
    2 - Any other clash that could be useful?

    And of course any comments is more then welcome

    Not sure if the question is related to Arch only or clashing Arch v Struct prior to issuing to MEP.

    Arch v Struct checks that seem to be helpful (clearance test with two-inch allowance for steel fireproofing):

    Framing v Ceiling
    Column v Wall
    Door v All Struct
    Window v All Struct

    We group the above clash types as much as possible on a room by room basis, then create annotated viewpoints of specific issues to avoid asking downstream users to find needles in the haystack of clashes.

    Best,

    Facade check is great. Unfortunately steel connections are often not modeled until fabrication stage.

    The question was definitely gear toward architect. They usually tend to send the model away without looking for theyre own problems
    So it's all internal to the arch model.
