BIMForum BxP Series Webinar: 2017 Update on Level Of Development (LOD) Specification

lod webinar

This presentation will provide discussion of updates to the 2017 BIMForum Level of Development (LOD) Specification. The framework of the discussion will consider the LOD Specification that defines models on a scale of 100 to 400, with a particular focus of LOD 350. The session will provide new illustrations of LOD from 300 to 350 to 400 for structural steel, concrete, cold-formed metal, enclosures, and MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing). This will demonstrate how to use LOD to define team expectations of what should be modeled. We will show practical examples of model detail issues, along with effective approaches to resolving the challenges using the LOD Specification as an early Building Information Modeling (BIM) planning tool.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discover what a model element Level Of Development (LOD) for design is.
  2. Understand what the BIMForum LOD Specification 2017 is and how you can address LOD in projects with it.
  3. Understand how to use the LOD Specification with design and construction teams to lower risk.
  4. Understand why LOD discussions are crucial early in a project.
