Power bi datamodel

Just starting a new project where I am hired to finish a Power bi solution that has been deliverd to client as phase 1. They want me to execute the phase 2. When I am looking into the solution that has been approved (haven’t seen the approval). The datamodel makes me a littlebit nervous. It looks like shit.
