I am drawing three buildings for a company developing a RV park.  Office, laundry and bath house.  So I named the first drawing Bath House and drew the Laundry.  Dumb, I know.  So I went to the projects folder and renamed it Laundry.  But it's still named Bath House when I open Softplan.   Does any one know how to get SoftPlan to make the change?

Changing the folder name does not update the project information contained in the folder. You can change the name that appears on all of the documents by opening the Project Options and change the Client Name in the Project Information tab.

Drawings are drawings and a project contains all the drawings.  If you have all the drawings  (buildings) in the same project they you will have delete the project .SPP file and create a new project called "RV park" and then drag the drawings into the new project.  It is possible to just rename the project if you are not sharing it to someone else or using the cloud.  If you do, DO NOT rename.  It will mess it all up.
