Sitework in Revit shouldn’t be dissimilar from the identical in any drafting program: it’s largely drafted components. The important thing benefit is that you need to use your mannequin for reference, and over and above that, you may lock your website traces to components within the mannequin. Due to this fact, in case your mannequin is revised, the location plan will replace mechanically. Many of the problem in creating a great website plan lie with the problems of grading and venture relocation.


Grading is finished by enhancing a toposurface. By including factors at completely different elevations, the grade is formed in three dimensions. As a result of the topography is drawn from these factors, awkward dips can happen if there are usually not sufficient factors. That is very true when adjusting grade at a retaining wall. Typically the very best wager is simply so as to add factors.

Relocating The Undertaking Vertically[edit]

Relocating your venture is straightforward: transfer your grade relative to your venture with out regard for the accuracy of your grade factors. Then, relocate your venture up or down by the quantity essential to appropriate your factors (spot elevations).

Most new customers marvel why their whole venture, mannequin and website collectively, go flying up or down upon relocation. The reply is solely that Revit does not perceive the straightforward distinction between venture components and website components as issues that may be moved relative to 1 one other. It simply strikes all the pieces! So, if you wish to transfer your website relative to to your constructing, you have to seize your website components and transfer them to the place you need relative to your constructing, after which relocate the venture as essential to get your spot elevations to learn accurately.

Usually, the one website component that must be moved vertically is your topography (however do ensure your timber and utilities are hosted by your topography or they will not transfer.)

Relocating The Undertaking Horizontally[edit]

Horizontal location generally is a bit extra tough. That is one thing that you simply would possibly do if you’re drawing a sequence of buildings in a row, however every is in a separate Revit file. You’ll be able to hyperlink these information into one grasp file and have them seem with the proper vertical and horizontal relationship to 1 one other by inserting them within the grasp file based on their shared coordinates. For instance, if these buildings are comparable, you could full one constructing after which put it aside to a brand new file to start out the subsequent constructing. To ensure the subsequent constructing sits relative to the primary constructing in plan, you will have to relocate that venture horizontally.

This operation is extra tough as a result of grabbing the location components requires care. You not solely must seize your topography, however you additionally must seize your property traces, timber, utility poles, and any traces or textual content which might be related to the location, after which transfer these as far over as required. Then you definitely relocate the venture equally the other way.
