Level of Development (LOD)

Collaboration of all building construction disciplines to enhance downstream approaches with LOD 100 to LOD 500 adhering to AIA standard.

We help EPC firms, architects, engineers and building product fabricators to adapt BIM workflows with Level of Development (as defined by AIA) ranging from LOD 100 to LOD 500. Our engineers and BIM experts help architects, engineers and fabricators add value to the Revit models and/or create new ones with detailing as needed.

At Hi-Tech, we toil to meet exact client expectation and deliver models with and without non-graphical data add-ons, as per client specification. Our aims in developing LOD models lie to help EPC firms reduce liabilities, materials wastage, manpower and time consumed through cost effective solutions.

Level of Development

We deliver LOD 100 models that include overall building mass that indicates area, height and volume and orientation of the facility in form of 3D models or other data representation methods. With the gradual progress in design, we go detailed modeling solution [viz. LOD 200 and LOD 300] with higher level of details included.

With LOD 300 models; we help EPC firms and surveyors extract precise quantity, size and hence spatial arrangement with and without non-graphical data. Our LOD 350 models depict detailed information about building elements and their interfaces with one another using graphics and texts in collaboration with graphical symbols.

Progressing ahead, our LOD 500 models depict all the relevant information needed for maintenance, operation and construction including, geometry, orientation, metadata, tags, quantity, etc. By embedding information about architectural, structural, MEP and various other building products in LOD 500 with appropriate dimensioning, we develop insights for cost, scheduling and risk mitigation.

To boost LOD model generation, we also create Revit families of various architectural elements such as balustrades, lighting, etc.; structural elements including beams, roofs, trusses, joints, columns etc.; MEP products including plumbing and sanitary fixtures, cables, trays, switchboards etc.

We develop BIM content for building products such as plant room equipment, boilers, furniture items etc. to align fabricators with BIM workflows. With these libraries we enable quick generation of LOD 500 models by easily replicating the parts from libraries and also for cost estimation.

We, at Hi-Tech, deliver advanced full scale rendering of the as-built models using Autodesk 3ds Max and Photoshop to achieve the specified LOD standards. 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.

Our BIM services including level of development are aligned to assist EPC firms and general contractors across a range of industries that includes:

  • Residential, commercial and industrial building construction
  • Educational and institutional campus construction
  • Healthcare construction
  • Recreational constructions such as parks, hotels and resorts, etc.
  • Infrastructure development such as dams, tunnels etc.
  • Transportation industry that includes railways, tunnels etc.

As the models are purpose built for various stages of design, visualization, scheduling, construction-caliber quantities, cost estimation, onsite project control and fabrication, they support clients to streamline workflows, gain better control over projects and increase productivity.
