How to Create Room Data Sheets in Revit

Room data sheets (RDS) are utilized to communicate the needs of the client for a particular space type to the design team and are typically created during the briefing or architectural programming phases. The information they contain could include general requirements and guidance notes or detailed specifications for finishes, fixtures and fittings (F&F) and mechanical and electrical equipment.

The information is usually provided on a single sheet per room (hence the name) but depending upon scope may also be spread over more than one sheet. The sheets are usually provided to contractors along with the drawings and specs.

A variety of software is available to aid in the creation of RDSs. Some are designed to connect to Revit models to ensure that the model’s content and the room data sheet are compatible. This makes the document easier to manage and avoids duplicate entries in both.

Layer is a powerful tool that can assist in the management of room data. It provides an easy-to use interface for recording room data, and it can create multiple sheets for each space type. It also allows you to backfill existing Revit projects by adding room types as well as create custom reports. Layer also lets users to specify naming conventions that are applicable to views on sheets. It can also alter properties like size, browser organization and the naming.

The Layouts panel allows you to define the margin values and the location of the titleblock, and other settings that control the layout. In addition, the option to exclude view titles in the calculation of the total size of views on a sheet can be disabled. This will stop titles from overlapping on the sheet. It could also allow for more elevation views to be generated on one sheet.
