How to Create Room Data Sheets in Revit

Room data sheets (RDS) are used to communicate the requirements of the client for a specific type of space to the design team. They typically, they are created during the briefing or architectural programming stages. They may include general requirements, guidelines notes, or detailed specifications of finishes and fixtures and fittings.

The information is normally presented on a separate sheet for each room (hence the name) but depending upon scope may be spread across more than one sheet. The sheets are usually provided to contractors with the specifications and drawings.

A variety of software is available to aid in the creation of RDSs. Some are designed to link to Revit models so that the model’s content and the room data sheet are compatible. This synchronisation helps to manage the document and prevents duplicate entries.

Layer is a powerful tool that can assist in the management of room data. It provides an easy-to use interface to capture room information and generate multiple sheets for each space type. It can even fill in the room types of existing Revit projects and produce custom reports. Layer also permits users to define naming conventions and views on sheets and control properties such as scale, browser organization and the naming.

The Layouts panel allows you to alter the margin values, the position of the titleblock and other settings that control the layout. In addition, the option of exclude view titles when estimation of the size of the view on a sheet is enabled. This will prevent titles from overtaking views on the sheet and may also allow more elevation views on sheets.
