Complex or large projects require special collaboration solutions. The successful collaboration approach should be tailored to the office organization and the type of project. As a rule, large projects should be divided into smaller, logical parts using a combination of Teamwork and hotlink solutions.
A multi-story office building is in the construction design phase. The building consists of two wings that are stored in two independent Teamwork projects. From the very early stage a 3D model of the whole building was built, containing only those elements essential for visualization and conceptual design. Based on this model, two Teamwork projects were created (one for each tower) that served as the basis of the construction documentation. The Teamwork projects refer to external hotlinked modules and Xrefs such as column grids, land surveys and other consultant drawings.
The documentation is stored in two Layout Book files to reduce the size of the Teamwork projects and to allow the project documentation team to work in parallel with the designers/architects.
