Override surfaces per view

Not applicable
I am trying to create views showing structure, MEP, and some architectural elements for coordination purposes. I want to color-code each type of element in order to understand how they are interfacing. For example, structure to appear as red, ductwork to appear as green, plumbing as blue, walls and floors as white with some transparency, etc.

It would be very simple to create these views by controlling layers and assigning surfaces directly to each element. HOWEVER, I want the elements to retain their non-diagram surfaces (structure as painted black, ductwork as stainless, etc.) so that they still appear properly/realistically in other views.

My question is: is there a way to override surfaces per view? I come from a Revit background, where this task is quite simple to perform with the visibility/graphics function. Looking for a similar technique/procedure. Thanks!
