BIM MODELING SERVICE
Our BIM models enable our clients to meet their design specifications, space allocation, fabrication details, and installation/assembly details.
Providing detailed and accurate Revit BIM models based on sketches, drawings, point cloud scans, PDFs, as well as creating custom Revit content/families, renders, and visualizations, etc. for our clients as per Scope of Work (SOW) and with required Level of Development (LOD) are the hallmarks of our Architectural BIM Modeling Services.
Unlike other companies, we offer fully integrated BIM structural services, including engineering and design modeling for all types of structures (steel, composite, reinforced concrete, pre-stressed, post-tensioned, and masonry/block structures), loading (earthquake, wind), analysis (continuous beams, rolling loads), and steel design (beams, torsion, columns) and connections (angles, panel tie-backs, base plates, and bolts).
Developing BIM models for Revit MEP is our specialty. We build accurate, detailed MEP models based on the BIM execution plan. Build models for the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems according to the defined spaces and zones.
BIM helps visualize designs in three dimensions in interior design. The BIM process enables everyone to work on the same file at the same time, so nobody is left waiting. As a result, the work will proceed faster, easier, and more accurately with less rework.
When drawn in two dimensions, façade areas can be difficult to visualize. By using 3D modeling, complex assembly details and intricate components can be displayed. The use of BIM models is considered extremely useful for explaining or demonstrating complex or unusual design patterns. Façade contractors and building owners can also gain from BIM integrated shop drawings & fabrication drawings for future reference.
Level of Development
The level of Development is the degree to which the element’s geometry has been thought through – the degree to which project team members may rely on the information when using the model
Elements in LOD 100 are not geometric representations. For example, the existence of a component may be indicated, but not its shape, size, or precise location. The data is approximate.
Elements at this level are generic placeholders. The elements may be recognized as their components or they may be used to reserve space. Information derived from LOD 200 elements must be treated as approximate.
The quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation of the element can be determined directly from the model without the need to refer to information that has not been modeled such as notes or dimension call-outs. The origin of the project is defined, and the element is accurately located.
Those parts necessary for the coordination of an element with nearby or attached elements are modeled. Examples are support and connections. The quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation of an element can be determined directly from the model without referring to non-modeled information such as notes or dimension call-outs.
LOD 400 elements are modeled with sufficient detail and accuracy to fabricate the component. Quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation of the element as designed can be determined directly from the model without consulting non-modeled information such as notes or dimension call-outs.
As LOD 500 relates to field verification and is not an indication of progress to a higher level of model element geometry or non-graphic information, this specification does not define or illustrate it.
