BIM Level of Development Services (LOD)

Usage of BIM envisages preliminary visualization of a building prior to its actual physical construction and aids in collision detection at the initial stage, identifying the exact location of discrepancies thereby minimizing delays, errors and subsequent wastage. It help the architects to analyze various building parameters like spatial relationships, building geometry, lighting analysis, building properties and geographic information. BIM enables subcontractors to collaborate effectively through conflict or ‘clash detection’ among architectural, structural and MEP elements and evolve an integrated 3D model.

Whether you are an architect or a designer who needs a presentation model to propose your design to a builder, a building product manufacturer who wants make a model catalog for your customers, a building contractor who wants to use an architectural model for coordination & clash detection, a maintenance contractor or a building operator who needs an as-built model to capture the existing building conditions, WE CAN HELP YOU!
