I am working on a project in which I have set up a full working MEP model. This has taken me a fair old time to do as well due to the size of the project. The architect has now moved the building to align with the OS coordinates throwing my model 40m out of sync. 

I am really stuck. 

As I have set up spaces, levels, view ranges etc I am worried all my work will be redundant and I'll have to start again. 

Is there a simple way to get my model in line with the new Architectural one?

Hi James

Sorry for the slow response.

Please, whatever you do, don't move your model.

Set up a new model
Link in the Architectural model (center / center)
Acquire coordinates from the Arch model
Link in your model
Align your model with the architectural model
Click on you model
Click on shared site in the properties
Publish the coordinates to your model
Save the model as a site coordination model and close

Your models will now share the same coordinate system.  Confirm by adding a Coordinate tag to both models.
