Project Year

Level of Detailing (LOD300) Modelling according to AIA Standards for a Reputed Public Park

TrueCADD as Architects

Project Details: - Client is a giant construction company headquartered in Chicago. - The project was to create Architectural, Structural & MEP BIM Models for their new upcoming park to be build up in California. - Scope of work was to provide client BIM Models with LOD-300 for a Public Park Challenges: - The client provided us inputs like hand drawn sketches, conceptual sketches, pdf files etc. First thing to do was to understand inputs in different forms through proper & effective client communication. - The important task was to add on the creativity to the project to give it an excellent architectural look. - So to build new architectural models & to coordinate it with other disciplines like structural & MEP was difficult sometimes. Execution: - The inputs available with us were in the form of hand drawn & conceptual sketches, pdf files, which we were to convert into intelligent BIM models using Revit. - Next step was to create BIM models with different disciplines like Architectural, Structural & MEP which was successfully accomplished as per client’s requirement in the form of 3D Revit Models. - Finally after that we started to look into the coordination between the models, so called Clash Detection with the help of Navisworks & were successful in scrutinizing all the clashes. - The build up of architectural objects from concepts helped the client to give it a unique architectural look. - As same technical team was dedicated for the project, the client was really satisfied for smoother communication & coordination which further reduced overall time & cost as well. Inputs Received: PDF Files, Hand Drawn & Conceptual Sketches Outputs Delivered: BIM models with following disciplines: Architecture, Structure, MEP BIM Platform: - Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012 - Autodesk Revit Structure 2012 - Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 - Autodesk Naviswork 2012
