Revit – Southern Hemisphere Shared Coordinates – 3 of 4 – Interdisciplinary Coordination

Clash detection can reduce errors on the construction site significantly. Typically the various disciplines need to clash detect every week so that potential challenges are eliminated before they reach the project engineer or for that matter the building site. Historically up to 20% of a construction project is wasted on clashes during construction. This is simply unacceptable. Revit offers the perfect solution to eliminate this.

 

The Architectural project and the Site project are independently linked into the mechanical file by shared coordinates. The coordination between the building pad and Architectural model is evident.

Some ducting is created in the Mechanical file which clearly clashes with model geometry in the Architectural file. A clash Detection is performed.
