Rooms, Areas, and Schedules

The implementation of GSA SDM (Spatial Data Management) is only present in the Architectural Template. Any project requiring the completion of SDM data should start with the Architectural Template. This implementation is handled primarily through the addition of a number of parameters added to both Room and Space objects as well as corresponding schedules.

Rooms and Areas

In order to derive complete and accurate SDM schedules parameters have been added to both Room and Area objects within the Architectural Template. When filled out completely these parameters are designed to produce SDM ready schedules from your model.

Schedules

Using the building information provided by Revit, the GSA has created a series of schedules design to address the most schedules found in an A/E/C project. The schedules are however, not all encompassing, and creation or modification of these schedules may be required based on project needs. Further, there are several schedules which should remain untouched. Those schedules are:

  • GSA OCCUPANT KEY TABLE
  • GSA PROGRAM ANALYSIS
  • GSA PROGRAM ANALYSIS – PROBLEMS
  • GSA SPACE AND FACILITIES SCHEDULE
  • PBS AB KEY
  • PBS ANSI.BOMA CATEGORY KEY
  • PBS SPACE CATEGORY KEY
  • PBS SPACE NAMES KEY
  • PBS SPACE SCHEDULE
  • PBS SPACE TYPE KEY

These schedules should not be deleted from the project. However, the remaining schedules, if unused, may be deleted from the project. Below is a list of schedules found in the project template and their intended purpose.

Legends

Legends provide a way to display a list of the various building components and annotations used in a project. GSA has created a series of typical legends for use on a project. Below is a list of legends found in the project template and their intended purpose.

LEGEND NAME PURPOSE
2D DETAIL COMPONENTS LEGEND COMMON LINEAR, WOOD, METAL, MASONRY/CONC, MISC COMPONENTS AND RECOMMEND REPRESENTATION
2D DRAFTING FILL PATTERNS LEGEND RECOMMENDED DRAFTING FILL PATTERNS
3D MODEL FILL PATTERNS LEGEND RECOMMENDED MODEL PATTERNS
