For this section consider that an elementary school will design an addition to accommodate an increased number of student enrollment. Revit can classify parts of the elementary school renovation project in phases such as New, Existing, Demolished, or Temporary.

New Construction consists of all elements that are added to the school such as a new foundation, walls, floors, windows, and more.

Existing Construction consists of all elements from the original building footprint.

Demolishing Construction classifies anything that will be taken away from the project, such as the exterior wall torn down for the new construction to attach to.

Temporary Construction consists of all elements used during the construction such as fences, scaffolding or braces.
