While you can get a certain way using Graphic Overrides (color coding views based on Element properties), the crucial part missing is the possibility to hide elements as part of a Graphic Override (or only show those who obey a GO rule).
Out-of-the-box, it is trickery with layers, views, renovation status...
For main "phasing" this is feasible.
For full-on construction planning, it is not.
As a remark: my company developed something for SketchUp (4D virtual builder) which is a simple way to do this, but based on SketchUp. We envisage on the long term to extend to Revit en ARCHICAD too. But not tomorrow...
