Level of Development (LOD)

At TrueCADD, Our BIM teams deliver BIM models that conform to Level of Development (LOD - 100 to 500) to specify and articulate design details with high level of clarity.
Level of Development (LOD)

Right from drafters to design consultants, contractors to construction firms, and engineers to architects, BIM has become an integral part of communication at various stages of building design and construction.

Our BIM teams empower each professional by resolving design complexity through 3D visualization, Bill of Quantities (BOQs), scheduling, estimations, on-site production control and fabrication.

We create 3D models equivalent to detailed Gantt charts to help contractors stay updated about the planned progress v/s the actual progress on site. Furthermore, we also deliver BIM models to help contractors collaborate with building products fabricator by illustrating model elemental characteristics at various Levels of Development.

We deliver LOD for different levels as classified by American institute of Architects (AIA):

The LOD framework enables effective and accurate planning and tracking of several facets of the project delivery process at multiple stages. Our purpose built LOD models will enable you to gain better control over projects, streamline workflows and increase productivity.

Reasons you should insist on LOD specifications:

Although, LOD specifications cannot replace BIM Execution Plan (BIMXP), it is still necessary for the following reasons to have on your construction project.

Level of Development Vs Level of Detail

While both level of development and level of detail are abbreviated as LOD, they both mean different things. LOD where D stands for detail talks about the graphical details that are added to a model, however level of development is a measure of gravity of information represented by a BIM element. The level of development is a reasonable concept developed by AIA where development refers to the level of certainty about an object.

For example if you are contractor - you do not need to know how the element looks, however what is more important is what is the manufacturer number and model number. Similarly the amount and type of information needed by various construction professionals for varied purposes differs.

We have extensive experience of developing BIM models with varying LOD standards from LOD 100 to LOD 500; Contact us for more information.
