Chapter 17. Fine-Tuning Your Preliminary Design

The next step we'll explore is taking a preliminary building design and doing spatial analysis of the Revit model. You'll see how creating simple schedules of building and room areas can verify program information and start to generate preliminary cost analysis. We'll show you how to verify program data and evaluate a project's initial feasibility.

In this chapter, you'll learn to:

  • Quantify your preliminary designs

  • Create schedules

  • Use schedules for preliminary cost estimates
