Level of Development (LOD)

The BIM’s Level of Detail (LOD) – defines how the 3D geometry of the building model can achieve different levels of refinement, is used as a measure of the service level required. EM Consultant offers five LOD options ranging from 100 to 500. Using the Level of Detail (LOD) industry specifications as a guide, EM 3D Modeling Service will create a 3D model of your projects based on the specificity required. We also deliver animation services for LOD in the sequence for virtual construction sequencing and simulation to develop insights of how and what will be constructed.

 

EM BIM Consultant has the expertise of delivering LOD for different levels. We adopt an internationally accepted standards for LOD. These development models are purpose built for various stages of design, 3D visualization, construction-caliber quantities, scheduling, estimations, on-site production control and fabrication.

We produce clash free models in building and infrastructure with LOD 100-500 to enable architects, engineers, contractors, construction firms, drafters and design consultants to articulate component geometry and information evolution through various project stages.

Our LOD adoption as classified by the American Institute of Architects (AIA)

LOD 100 Conceptual Design

Concept Design

The building 3D model is developed to represent the information on basic level. Thereby, only conceptual model creation is possible in this stage. Parameters like area, height, volume, location and orientation are defined.

LOD 200 - Schematic Design

Greater Detail and Construction Documentation

General model where elements are modeled with approximate quantities, size, shape, location and orientation. We can also attach non- geometric information to the model elements

LOD 300 - Detailed Design

General Modeling with Schematic Design

Accurate modeling and shop drawings where elements are defined with specific assemblies, precise quantity, size, shape, location and orientation. Here too we can attach non- geometric information to the model elements.

LOD 350 - Construction Documentation

Fabrication and Assembly

It includes model detail and element that represent how building elements interface with various systems and other building elements with graphics and written definitions.

LOD 400 - Fabrication & Assembly

Accurate Modeling and Detailed Design

Model elements are modeled as specific assemblies, with complete fabrication, assembly, and detailed information in addition to precise quantity, size, shape, location and orientation. Non- geometric information to the model elements can also be attached.

LOD 500 - As-Built

As-Built Models

Elements are modeled as constructed assemblies for Maintenance and operations. In addition to actual and accurate in size, shape, location, quantity, and orientation, non-geometric information is attached to modeled elements.
