FCSI has established the standards outlined in this document to ensure consistency, optimum functionality and quality of the BIM content provided for foodservice equipment. The foundation and source of the BIM Software used to create Revit family content are manufacturer spec sheets or other published product information. This document is not intended as training to implement these standards, or on how to use Revit. Autodesk and Revit are registered trademarks or trademarks of Autodesk, Inc., in the USA and other countries.
This document has been created in cooperation with input from representatives of the three FCSI divisions APD, EAME & TAD, having formed the FCSI BIM Taskforce (2020 – 2021) of Professional Consultants. The FCSI BIM Taskforce proposes that this document is used as guidelines to assist content creators globally. The objective of this Standard is provided as a template when content creators are commissioned with producing Revit families of foodservice equipment for the manufacturers of foodservice equipment. This document is not catch all to solve all issues in all regions. We acknowledge that some additional work will need to be tailored to suit local applications and codes.
