BIM LOD Services We Offer

Our comprehensive BIM LOD services cover all stages of the project lifecycle, from concept design to as-built modeling, ensuring accuracy, efficiency, and seamless collaboration.

  1. Our Pre-modeling Services

    Our Pre-modeling Services

    Our pre-modeling Services set the foundation for your project by defining the BIM execution plan, BIM standards, and workflows. We use advanced software like Revit and ArchiCAD to create a comprehensive project framework that aligns with the BIM LOD requirements. This stage is crucial in establishing the basis for subsequent modeling, ensuring accuracy and consistency throughout the project lifecycle.

  2. Our Conceptual Information Model Services

    Our Conceptual Information Model Services

    Our conceptual information model services fall within the LOD 100 and LOD 200 spectrum. We help clients visualize their projects through basic symbolic and general models. The models are developed with parameters like area, height, volume, location, and orientation defined. These models facilitate preliminary design discussions and provide a rough estimate of costs.

  3. LOD 100 - Concept Design

    LOD 100 - Concept Design

    Our LOD 100 Concept Design service is the inception of your project's BIM journey. At this stage, we develop a 3D model that outlines the basic information about your project. This includes defining parameters like area, height, volume, location, and orientation. We use innovative software like Revit to create these conceptual models, which provide a visual representation of the project and serve as the basis for all future development stages.

  4. LOD 200 - General Modeling with Schematic Design

    LOD 200 - General Modeling with Schematic Design

    Moving to a more detailed phase, our LOD 200 service involves the creation of a general model where elements are defined with approximate quantities, size, shape, location, and orientation. This schematic design phase, executed with advanced tools like AutoCAD, allows us to attach non-geometric information to the model elements. This level of detail facilitates early-stage clash detection, cost estimation, and helps in making informed design decisions.

  5. Our System Component Oriented Modeling

    Our System Component Oriented Modeling

    Our services in system component-oriented modeling correspond to LOD 300 and LOD 350, where model elements are graphically represented in terms of quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation. We utilize software such as Autodesk BIM 360 to detail how building elements interface with various systems, enhancing coordination and eliminating potential clashes.

  6. LOD 300 - Accurate Modeling and Detailed Design

    LOD 300 - Accurate Modeling and Detailed Design

    Our LOD 300 service takes BIM to the next level with detailed, accurate modeling. At this stage, each model element is graphically represented as a specific system, object, or assembly in terms of quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation. Using advanced software like Autodesk Revit, we can also attach non-graphic information to these elements. This level provides enhanced coordination of building systems and improved cost estimation.

  7. LOD 350 - Greater Detail and Construction Documentation

    LOD 350 - Greater Detail and Construction Documentation

    With our LOD 350 service, we delve deeper into the details of your project. This level includes model detail and elements that represent how building elements interface with various systems and other building elements. Through sophisticated software like Tekla Structures, we provide both graphic and written definitions, creating comprehensive construction documentation, which is crucial for efficient on-site construction management.

  8. Our Element Oriented Modeling

    Our Element Oriented Modeling

    At the highest level of detail, our element-oriented modeling services correspond to LOD 400 and LOD 500. We model elements as specific assemblies for fabrication, assembly, and post-construction operations. Using tools like Tekla Structures, we provide complete fabrication and assembly information, ensuring the model's precision for direct implementation on site and future maintenance.

  9. LOD 400 - Fabrication & Assembly

    LOD 400 - Fabrication & Assembly

    Our LOD 400 service focuses on the fabrication and assembly phase of your project. In this stage, we model elements as specific assemblies with complete fabrication, assembly, and detailing information in addition to precise quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation. Utilizing sophisticated software like Tekla Structures, we can also attach non-geometric information to these model elements. This level of detail is essential for direct implementation on site, minimizing errors, and reducing waste.

  10. LOD 500 - As-Built Modeling

    LOD 500 - As-Built Modeling

    Our LOD 500 service is the final stage in our BIM process, focusing on as-built modeling. At this level, elements are modelled as constructed assemblies for maintenance and operations. Using advanced tools like Bentley Systems, we ensure the models are accurate in size, shape, location, quantity, and orientation, and we attach non-geometric information for future reference. This level of detail is crucial for building management, maintenance, and future renovation projects.
