    BuildingSceneLayers are typically derived from BIM data extracted from Autodesk revit files.
    BuildingSceneLayers are a CompositeLayer. They contain two top-level child layers:
    o A FeatureSceneLayer providing an "Overview" (think of it as a simplified rendering of the building exterior).
    o A BuildingDisciplineSceneLayer providing the "Full Model" which includes all of the building disciplines extracted from the original BIM.
    Enumerate the Discipline Layers from a Building SceneLayer
    public void QueryBuildingSceneLayer()
      var bldgLayer = MapView.Active.Map.GetLayersAsFlattenedList().OfType<BuildingSceneLayer>().First();
      var disciplines = new Dictionary<string, BuildingDisciplineSceneLayer>();
      //A Building layer has two children - Overview and FullModel
      //Overview is a FeatureSceneLayer
      //Full Model is a BuildingDisciplineSceneLayer that contains the disciplines
      var fullModel = bldgLayer.FindLayers("Full Model").First() 
                                     as BuildingDisciplineSceneLayer;
      CollectDisciplineLayers(fullModel, disciplines);
    internal void CollectDisciplineLayers(BuildingDisciplineSceneLayer disciplineLayer,
      Dictionary<string, BuildingDisciplineSceneLayer> disciplines)
      //collect information on the disciplines
      var name = disciplineLayer.Name;
      //At 2.x - var layerType =
      //      ((ISceneLayerInfo)disciplineLayer).SceneServiceLayerType.ToString();
      var discipline = disciplineLayer.GetDiscipline();
      //TODO - use collected information
      disciplines.Add(discipline, disciplineLayer);
      //Discipline layers are composite layers too
      foreach (var childDiscipline in disciplineLayer.Layers
        //Discipline layers can also contain FeatureSceneLayers that render the
        //individual full model contents
        var content_names = string.Join(", ", childDiscipline.Layers
             .OfType<FeatureSceneLayer>().Select(fl => fl.Name));
        CollectDisciplineLayers(childDiscipline, disciplines);
    Name of BuildingSceneLayer
    var bsl = MapView.Active.Map.GetLayersAsFlattenedList()
    var scenelayerName = bsl.Name;
