BIMforum officially launches standard for how complete BIM elements should be at different project stages

BIMForum, a nationwide group of Building Information Modeling users, released the first-of-its kind standard establishing definitions for how complete Building Information Models (BIMs) need to be for different stages of the design and construction process. The new standard, known as the Level of Development Specifications (LOD), was developed under an agreement with the American Institute of Architects. “This specification will eliminate much of the confusion that comes with having different expectations for what should be in the models,” says Dmitri Alferieff, the director of the BIMForum.
