Revit 2024 – Phase Mapping


Phases are used in Revit to denote a time during which construction takes place. For example, an existing building is enlarged. First, a new North wing is added, then East, West and South. After each wing is added, the project is given time to prove itself, or to adjust, before the next phase is undertaken. The phases allow one to create schedules for each phase duration. Some BIM Managers create a new model for each phase, others not. If you are one that uses phases in your projects, you need to educate your production line on their use, and that one needs to phase map between links. This is necessary even if the teams are using the same phase naming convention.

Select the link. Then open the type properties.

Then you need to map the phases from the link onto the phases of the host project. Note, they do not have to be of similar names. Once you do, they will behave the same as the host phases when setting the phase and phase filter of the view.

It is important to note that one can only link a single phase to another one. So as the BIM Manager you should, at the very least, ensure that each team only uses phases as per the ability of Revit to map them. Best yet, use a BIM Execution Plan to ensure the supply chain complies.
