Occupancy, Egress, and Plumbing Calculations

Another analysis you can do in a project involves running a set of occupancy schedules based on the mass floors or floor slabs, or using rooms or areas placed in the model that are defined by the walls tied to the mass. In this example we used rooms, but the concepts are applicable to any schedule. This approach allowed us to quickly assess egress requirements or plumbing fixture counts, and roughly size vertical transportation elements in various building arrangements. Let's look at how you can create the types of calculations within Revit.

Key Schedules The code changes, but not on a per-project basis. So, anything you can encode into a key schedule can save your users time and lessen the likelihood ...
