How to Create Room Data Sheets in Revit

Room data sheets are used to communicate the client’s requirements for a particular type of space to the design teams. They are typically created during the meeting and architectural programming phases. The information they include could include general requirements as well as guidance notes as well as detailed specifications for finishes, fixtures and fittings (F&F) and electrical and mechanical equipment.

The information is usually provided on a single sheet per room (hence the name) but, depending on the scope, it could be spread out over more than one sheet. They are usually issued to contractors along with drawings and specifications.

There are a myriad of software applications to help you create RDSs. Some are designed to connect to Revit models to ensure that the contents of the model and the room data sheet correspond. This helps in managing the document and avoids duplicate entries.

Layer is a highly efficient management tool for room data. It provides an easy-to use interface for recording room data and can produce multiple sheets for different types of space. It can also backfill existing Revit projects with room types and produce custom reports. Layer lets users to define naming conventions on sheets, and can modify properties such as size, browser organization, and names.

The Layouts panel provides settings to regulate the layout of the views generated on a sheet including margin values and the location of the titleblock. The option to exclude the view titles from estimating the size of the sheet’s total view can also be turned on. This will stop titles from obscuring views on the sheet, and can also allow for more elevation views to be generated on the sheet.
