My most recent effort was direct towards the development of another Revit template and the plethora of families, annotations, tags, detail components and titleblocks that are needed for a complete functioning package. However, this round I was working with a fire alarm/fire protection engineering firm and was graciously led to new concepts and insights on potentials in file management strategies and creating an even more calculative Revit family. Furthermore, I learned first hand on their struggles with BIM and many best practices that architectural firms should be mindful of before sending their link off to consultants.
