With the IFC Mapping Rules (in Map IFC Properties for Export), you can only map simple, singular values, but not lists. Alas, within IFC most Pset_*Common PropertySets have the "Status" property which expresses the different status possibilities (NEW, DEMOLISHED, EXISTING, etc...).

However, due to this limitation, I cannot map the ARCHICAD Renovation Status to this field. Instead, ARCHICAD creates a custom property set 'CPset_Phasing' (in the early days they used an AC_Renovation property set).

We're trying to standardised IFC mappings within our industry working groups for multiple software and here, despite the stellar IFC support of ARCHICAD, I cannot fix it.

Probably a wish...

Can we map ARCHICAD Renovation Status to Pset_*Common.Status property in IFC?

but rather a concern. We try to standardise best practices to align as much as possible to IFC and configure the different BIM software as best as we can. This is one of those times where we don't succeed in mapping the "Renovation Status" from ARCHICAD to the desired property.
