Different Floor Heights on the Same Floor

Hi there,

In my building on the ground floor there are certain areas that are four steps lower than others. Giving a difference in FFL of around 0.5m.

How would I create a different floor level within the same floor?

Regards

  • Hi Kieran,

    It is quite difficult to model stepped levels on the same floor, but you can instead model this by simply treating both areas as having the same floor level, and then adjusting the Room Heights to take account for the change in room volumes.
