    Hey Bryon. Not sure how your question pertains to Revit. Are you asking how to graphically represent the structural elements on the framing plan?

    If you're asking about framing layout, member sizes, and design efficiency, I would consult with the engineer of record and/or general contractor.

    Your framing layout looks fine and the joist spans are definitely doable. I'm sure an argument can be made for turning the direction of the joist 90 degrees but its all a "preference game" at that point. Your layout makes sense to me because you have your line of piers parallel to the long dimension of the building footprint and having equal bays of joist framing.

    I would mention a couple things to keep in mind although they are not set in stone. Its always good practice to have all the joists running in the same direction whenever possible. It is not always feasible or cost efficient in every situation but it should always be considered. Lastly, if you're using hardwood floors in the rooms as a finished material, it is best to install the hardwoods perpendicular to the floor joist framing.This gives you a stronger floor and is sometimes missed by contractors. So if you/your client wants their hardwoods to run in a particular direction, just plan on framing the joist below them perpendicular to it.
