#2 - Buildings, Floors, and Floorplans

Initial Setup of Buildings and Floors

Depending on the number of buildings and floors you have, adding them using a bulk import may be quicker.

Step 1. Set up the Import Files

You will need to set up your Buildings and Floors, and the data requirements, examples, and import templates are found in:

  1. Set up the Buildings Import using the template found in Requirements for Building Data
  2. Set up the Floor Import using the template found in Requirements for Floor Data

Step 2. Upload the Import Files

Now, you can complete the imports:

  1. First, upload the Buildings; see Add Buildings via the Building Import
  2. Second, upload the Floors, see Add Floors via the Floor Import

If you have a small number, you can add them manually; see Manage Buildings and Floors.

Initial Setup of Floor plans

SpaceIQ allows customers to upload floor plans into the product during and after onboarding.

Step 1. Complete the Floor plan Preparation

The floor plan will be published as a PNG image uploaded into SpaceIQ. The Floorplan Preparation article details what preparation needs to be completed on the source file:

  • .DWG
  • .PDF
  • .PNG

If you are using Blocks to set up furniture blocks, see the Floorplan Preparation article for how to set up the .DWG Source File and Blocks Preparation.

Step 2. Upload your Floor plan

Now your floor plan is ready to be uploaded, and you have a choice for how you load the floor plan either:

  • Manually Upload - manually upload the floor plan image as a PNG  see Add a Floorplan.
  • SpaceIQ AutoCAD Plugin to Upload - if you are using Blocks then you will upload a floor plan using the SpaceIQ AutoCAD Plugin see SiQ AutoCAD Plugin

Remember - Buildings and Floors can be Hidden or Shown in SpaceIQ.

Depending on your requirements, you can quickly set up which buildings and floors are displayed in SpaceIQ. If you want a floor hidden, this can be completed in Manage a Floor.
