This presentation will provide an in-depth discussion of what is new in the Level Of Development (LOD) from the 2016 AGC BIMForum LOD Specification from one of the specification's authors on best practices and risk management. It will address model elements at the different stages in a building life cycle: Design, Construction and Ownership. 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 which the speaker originally authored and introduced to the LOD Specification committee. The content will discuss how BIM element models are used by architects, mechanical engineers, construction managers, sub-contractors and fabricators. This will demonstrate how the newly issued LOD Specification can be used to define team expectations of what should be modeled. Practical examples of model detail issues will be shown along with effective approaches to resolve the challenges using the LOD Specification as an early BIM planning tool.
