How to Model Floors, Roofs, and Ceilings in Revit

Roofs, floors, and ceilings. In a very generic way, they consist of all the horizontal elements we can find in a building. In the program Revit, these three parts all have a similar modelling method, so they almost always appear one after the other when learning the software.

It is usually logical and therefore identical to start with the floors, then soffits, and finally, the ceilings. After having modelled the exterior and interior walls of the building, we have achieved all of this.

In order to create floors, it is imperative to have previously modelled the walls since the walls can easily match the floors to the existing walls. We need to remember that the walls can only be ready if all levels of the project are managed at the beginning of the modelling process.

Just like with most of the items in Revit, floors are created and duplicated as many types and times necessary. The project’s level of detail is given special attention. The level of information enables us to create more or fewer floors that depend on the materials they are made up of.

Floors are modelled by contour, which means we’ll need to indicate what the perimeter of the floor is on the floor plan. For this reason, the most suitable methodology will be to refer to this contour in conjunction with the route marked by the facade walls.

In a similar manner, if we want to locate elements such as stairs or installation cubes in the ground, we must create an interior contour that Revit understands in its entirety.
