Detailed BIM models with variable Level of Detail (LOD)

Choose from LOD 100, 200, 300, 350, 400, 500

In 3D BIM modeling services, LOD stands for Level of Development and it defines how and in what way a project will begin and final look at the end of the project. This helps designers and contractors in illustrating the different characteristics at various levels of project development. Our BIM engineers and designers work closely with the clients to understand the needs of the project and we create the architectural BIM modeling based on the provided information.

Attention is given to ensure the details don’t vanish on scaling and all our deliverables are tested rigorously to ensure top quality output. Equal attention is given to delivery before or on-time and we boast of the quickest turnaround time among those offering BIM modeling services.

Different BIM Level of Developments Services Provided

Every Town Planning Drafting has its own set of challenges and requirements associated with it. So, the needs of the client vary when it comes to creating a Town Planning Documentation set. Some of the standard documents we provide as a part of the Town Planning Documentation set are:

01

LOD 100 - Concept Design

The initial stage of the construction. Here the project model and the concept is explained on a basic level. The models, at this stage, define the parameters like area, volume, heights, orientation etc, to be specified in the 3D model. All the information provided here is to be considered an approximation.

02

LOD 200 - Schematic Design

In the second stage of detailing, the specification regarding the quantity and materials are provided. Here, the model will graphically represent the details with approximate quantities, shape, sizes, locations, and orientation of the project. Any non-geometric / graphics information is also included in the models at this stage.

03

LOD 300 - Detailed Design

This is where the measurements and specifications are made precise. This model gives you the exact details of the requirement and based on the calculation, the raw materials and items are taken into consideration.

04

LOD 350 - Construction Documentation

At this stage, further clarity is obtained as the initial construction has been initiated. Any clash detection is rectified at this stage. In this LOD, the building interface and elements interconnecting with various systems and building elements is made possible.

05

LOD 400 - Fabrication & Assembly

At this stage, the model is created with finer details to assist the team in assembling the design and fabrication. This stage can be considered as the final model where the complete detailing of the project is done.

06

LOD 500 - As-Built

This stage LOD model is the graphical representation of the finished project. Any corrections or alterations made during construction are reflected here. This model will serve as a point of reference for the maintenance and operation works to be continued in a systematic way. This is the final stage of Model development.

Our Process

Upload Files

Send your CAD drawings or Blueprints in any of the supported formats while placing order. Also specify the LOD needed

Consultation

We analyze the project requirements and set up a consultation session to understand your needs

Project Execution

Depending on the LOD type, the project is allocated to the dedicated production team, who execute it as per your needs

Quality Check & Revisions

The first draft is shared with you after stringent quality checks, any corrections are implemented

Final Delivery

The project files are sent to you

FAQs

Why are the LOD models needed when you have a BIM Execution Plan (BIMXP)?

LOD model may not be as precise as the BIM Execution Plan (BIMXP), it has its own importance when it comes to construction project drafting. Some of the key feature of LOD specifications are:

  • You can to define model utility and reliability aspects
  • It highlights the usability and limitations of a model to the different stakeholders
  • It help owners to set inclusion aspects in BIM deliverables
  • The project design manager can communicate key design details where needed in the various levels of design process
  • It establishes standard references for contracts and BIMXP

Do you work with projects in the international market?

Yes. We regularly work on international projects. Thankfully, creating LOD models for a BIM project does not require physical presence.

How detailed the model needs to be?

We suggest that depending on the need for the project, going for one specific model is not economical. In practice, an LOD 200-300 is far enough for plan coordination & virtual construction. But going for fabrication drawing level models (LOD 400-500) would be a necessity when your project is near-completion.

Why is LOD 350 there? Why the intermediate numbering?

As per the guidelines, a LOD 300 model gives the structural engineer details regarding the exact dimension, location and orientation of different objects. This is appropriate for permanent sets of permit drawings.

With LOD 400 specification, higher level fabrication models are prepared with complete detailing, fabrication, assembly and installation information. Since you need a model that fills in the gap between these two standards and this is where LOD 350 fits in the picture. The LOD 350 contains information about the construction layout and they bring clarity to the design and construction process.

What do we deliver?

In the case of Construction or 3D planning, in addition to the 3D BIM modeling, in an editable, native format, we also provide the data collected into the tables (quantities, conflicts in plans, schedules).

For plan coordination, the final product is a self-dependent package that can readily be used for construction.

What Softwares do you use for 3D BIM services?

We use Revit, ArchiCAD, SolidWorks, Navisworks, AutoCAD, and Solid Edge for your 3D BIM modeling service requirements.
