Re-posting this as it’s valuable information that I’ve
refereed too numerous times. I wrote this back in 2013 and the
information is still relevant!


Really! You may have a team of people
working on your Revit project but who’s in
charge? 

Well, the Architect of course….
Wrong! 


Sure the Architect may be in charge of
the project but who’s managing your Revit
project? 

It’s not the Architects, he’s too busy dealing with
client meetings and the contractors etc…


There may be a number of people in the
office working on the project but unless there is a defined
hierarchy of the Revit project team you may not be working
efficiently.


That’s what I have found, and have
since created a structure for Revit project teams.

 By structuring your team and assigning roles you
create efficiency in time and productivity. Structure like this
helps people concentrate on their task at hand, it also reduces
overlap of work and provides some consistency in project
standards, content and responsibility. Kind of takes the
pressure of the projerct Architect if the Revit project is
managed well.


Here’s what I’ve
implemented:
