What if all Owners had an intuitive, collaborative and visual method to identify the BIM they actually need?
What if every Architect, Engineer and Consultant could easily agree on exactly what BIM scope they’re signing up for?
What if all Contractors could manage their BIM requirements in a collaborative and integrated BIM scoping workflow?
What is LOD Planner?
We believe in Owners, Architects, Engineers, and Contractors agreeing on BIM
We believe in simple BIM planning
We believe in crafting a beautiful BIM management platform
Three Core LOD Principles:
Which elements do we really need?
Can you coordinate around or count something that’s not there? Maybe you’ve also seen models with too much detail? We see contractual risks in both under and over modeling.
Shouldn’t our BIM plans support the optimum project requirements?
How good is good-enough?
Is your as-built actually As Built? As design itterates, should we spend time coordinating around elements that are yet to be finalized?! Does detailed modeling without accuracy add value?
Wouldn’t a flexible, targeted BIM scope reduce rework and support reliability?
What information will actually be used?
Ah, the “I” in BIM! Over specifying information requirements can add unnecessary hours of data input. On the other hand a model missing critical data is about as useful as a waterproof towel.
Shouldn’t “necessary information” be at the heart of efficient BIM?
One Core BIM Community Principle:
Together we can simplify BIM.
