Why adopt ANZRS?

There are a number of reasons to adopt ANZRS.  Some are listed below:

Key features of the Standards:

  • improved consistency of content and associated parameters
  • simpler, more consistent scheduling of object data through an established list of custom Shared Parameters
  • greater interoperability of content between subscribing parties and between disciplines
  • simpler, more familiar control over families through the use of a list of established subcategories
  • discipline-specific requirements for Revit Content (where not already included in the general documentation), for Architecture/ Interiors, Structural and Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP)
  • measures for achieving minimum file size, while underpinning optimal performance for both family regeneration and project file performance

By adopting ANZRS, your firm will be able to:

  • Save time and money by sharing and/or purchasing Revit content that is both consistent and reliable – rather than employing specialist content creators in-house
  • Better understand and communicate the digital content needs of your own organisation as well as other project stakeholders
  • Provide better value to clients and other project participants through better digital content and consequently, better digital project models
  • Contribute to the ongoing improvement of the standards as technological advancements allow

By being able to make use of Revit content that is robust and fit-for-purpose, you need not employ a specialist content creator.  Your QA needs are diminished, and you have a higher degree of ‘predictability of product’ in purchasing or procuring ANZRS-compliant Revit families.  This equates to tens of thousands of dollars of savings for large companies.
