Level of Development (LOD) Specification Introduction


1

Overview
1

The Level of Development (LOD) Specification is a reference that enables practitioners in the AEC Industry to specify
and articulate with a high level of clarity the content and reliability of Building Information Models (BIMs) at various stages
in the design and construction process. The LOD Specification utilizes the basic LOD definitions developed by the AIA for
2
3
the AIA G202-2013 Building Information Modeling Protocol Form and is organized by CSI Uniformat 2010 . It defines
and illustrates characteristics of model elements of different building systems at different Levels of Development. This
clear articulation allows model authors to define what their models can be relied on for, and allows downstream users to
clearly understand the usability and the limitations of models they are receiving.
The intent of the Specification is to help explain the LOD framework and standardize its use so that it becomes more
useful as a communication tool. It does not prescribe what Levels of Development are to be reached at what point in a
project but leaves the specification of the model progression to the user of this document. To accomplish the documents
intent, its primary objectives are:

To help teams, including owners, to specify BIM deliverables and to get a clear picture of what will be included in
a BIM deliverable

To help design managers explain to their teams the information and detail that needs to be provided at various
points in the design process

To provide a standard that can be referenced by contracts and BIM execution plans.

Background

The BIMForum initiated the development of this LOD Specification and formed a working group comprising contributors
from both the design and construction sides of the major disciplines. The working group first interpreted the AIAs basic
LOD definitions for each building system, and then compiled examples to illustrate the interpretations. Because BIM is
being put to an ever increasing number of uses, the group decided that it was beyond the initial scope to address all of
them. Instead, the specifications were developed to address model element geometry, with three of the most common
uses in mind quantity take-off, 3D coordination and 3D control and planning. The group felt that in taking this approach
the interpretations would be complete enough to support other uses.

Levels of Development

AIA Contract Document G202-2013, Building Information Modeling Protocol Form is part of a new series of
digital practice documents the AIA will be publishing in in conjunction with the AIA National Convention in June
2013. For general information on the documents and downloadable drafts that were published in August 2012 as
part of a public comment period see www.aia.org/digitaldocs. Once the final documents are released, samples
will be available for download through the same site.

Specification
Version: DRAFT 2013

The Level of Development (LOD) framework addresses several issues that arise when a BIM is used as a communication
or collaboration tool, i.e., when someone other than the author extracts information from it:

During the design process, building systems and components progress from a vague conceptual idea to a precise
description. In the past there has been no simple way to designate where a model element is along this path.
The author knows, but others often dont.

Its easy to misinterpret the precision at which an element is modeled. Hand drawings range from pen strokes on
a napkin to hard lines with dimensions called out, and its easy to infer the precision of the drawing from its
appearance. In a model though, a generic component placed approximately can look exactly the same as a
specific component located precisely, so we need something besides appearance to tell the difference.

It is possible to infer information from a BIM that the author doesnt intend unstated dimensions can be
measured with precision, assembly information often exists before its been finalized, etc. In the past, this issue
has been sidestepped with all-encompassing disclaimers that basically say, Since some of the information in the
model is unreliable, you may not rely on any of it. The LOD framework allows the author to clearly state the
reliability of given model elements, so the concept becomes Since some of the information in the model is
unreliable, you may only rely on it for what I specifically say you can.

In a collaborative environment, where people other than the model author are depending on information from the
model in order to move their own work forward, the design work plan takes on high importance it is necessary
for the model users to know when information will be available in order to plan their work. The LOD framework
facilitates this.

The LOD Framework addresses these issues by providing an industry-developed standard to describe the state of
development of various systems within a BIM. This standard enables consistency in communication and execution by
facilitating the detailed definition of BIM milestones and deliverables.

3.1 Level of Development vs. Level of Detail


This Specification uses the concept of Levels of Development rather than Levels of Detail. There are important
differences.
Level of Detail is essentially how much detail is included in the model element. Level of Development is the degree to
which the elements geometry and attached information has been thought through the degree to which project team
members may rely on the information when using the model. In essence, Level of Detail can be thought of as input to the
element, while Level of Development is reliable output.

LOD Definitions

In 2008, the AIA developed its first set of Level of Development definitions in AIA Document E202 -2008 Building
Information Modeling Protocol. Due to the rapidly evolving nature of the use of BIM, the AIA evaluated the AIA E202
2008, including the LOD definitions. The result is the updated and reconfigured Digital Practice documents, AIA E203
2013, Building Information Modeling and Digital Data Exhibit, AIA G2012013, Project Digital Data Protocol Form, and
AIA G2022013, Project Building Information Modeling Protocol Form, which are accompanied by a detailed guide
document entitled Guide and Instructions to the AIA Digital Practice Documents. The AIAs updated Digital Practice
documents include revised LOD definitions.
To help further the standardization and consistent use of the LOD concept, and to increase its usefulness as a foundation
for collaboration, the AIA agreed to allow the BIMForum to utilize its latest LOD definitions in this Specification. The LOD
definitions that are used in this catalog are identical to those to be published in the AIAs updated Digital Practice
Documents, with two exceptions.

Specification
Version: DRAFT 2013

First, the working group identified the need for an LOD that would define model elements sufficiently developed to
facilitate coordination between disciplines e.g. clash detection/avoidance, layout, etc. The requirements for this level
are higher than those for 300, but not as high as those for 400. Thus it was designated LOD 350. The AIA documents do
not include LOD 350, but the associated Guide and Instructions references it.
Second, while LOD 500 is included in the AIAs LOD definitions, the working group did not feel it was necessary to further
define and illustrate LOD 500 in this Specification because it relates to field verification. Accordingly the expanded
descriptions and graphical illustrations in this Specification are limited to LOD 100-400.
Fundamental LOD Definitions

LOD 100
The Model Element may be graphically represented in the Model with a symbol or other generic
representation, but does not satisfy the requirements for LOD 200. Information related to the Model Element (i.e.
cost per square foot, tonnage of HVAC, etc.) can be derived from other Model Elements.

LOD 200
The Model Element is graphically represented within the Model as a generic system, object, or
assembly with approximate quantities, size, shape, location, and orientation. Non-graphic information may also be
attached to the Model Element.

LOD 300
The Model Element is graphically represented within the Model as a specific system, object or
assembly in terms of quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation. Non-graphic information may also be
attached to the Model Element.

LOD 350
The Model Element is graphically represented within the Model as a specific system, object, or
assembly in terms of quantity, size, shape, orientation, and interfaces with other building systems. Non-graphic
information may also be attached to the Model Element.

LOD 400
The Model Element is graphically represented within the Model as a specific system, object or
assembly in terms of size, shape, location, quantity, and orientation with detailing, fabrication, assembly, and
installation information. Non-graphic information may also be attached to the Model Element.

LOD 500
The Model Element is a field verified representation in terms of size, shape, location, quantity,
and orientation. Non-graphic information may also be attached to the Model Elements. 4

2x4 troffer, specific size/shape/location
Lightolier DPA2G12LS232, specific size/shape/location
As 350, plus special mounting details, as in a decorative soffit

Glossary
The expanded definitions use the following interpretations of these terms:

Specific: The quantity, size, shape, location, and orientation of the element as designed can be measured directly
from the model without referring to non-modeled information such as notes or dimension call-outs.
Actual: The model element includes all the qualities of a specific element and is representative of the
manufacturer-specific model to be installed or the construction intent of an assembly.

Order of Precedence

The definitions for LOD 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 included in this Specification represent the updated
language that appears in the AIAs most recent BIM protocol document, G2022013, Building Information
Modeling Protocol Form. The LOD 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 definitions are produced by the AIA and have
been used by permission. Copyright 2013. The American Institute of Architects. All rights reserved. LOD 350
was developed by the BIMForum working group. Copyright 2013. The BIMForum and the American Institute of
Architects. All rights reserved.

The body of this Specification expands on these fundamental definitions as they apply to specific building systems and
sub-systems. In the event of any conflict, more specific expansions take precedence over less specific expansions and
fundamental definitions, e.g. the expanded definitions for C1010 take precedence over those for C10, which in turn take
precedence over the fundamental definitions.
Model Element Author
This document does not prescribe who the author of a particular component at a certain LOD should be the sequence of
responsibility for modeling various systems will vary from one project to another. To accommodate for this variation this
document defers to the concept of Model Element Author (MEA) as defined in the AIA E203-2013: The Model Element
Author is the entity (or individual) responsible for managing and coordinating the development of a specific Model Element
to the LOD required for an identified Project milestone, regardless of who is responsible for providing the content in the
5
Model Element."

4.1 LOD Definitions Explained


LOD 100, then, corresponds to a conceptual level. For example, in a massing model the interior walls may not yet be
modeled, but we can use the approximate floor area to generate an area-based interior construction cost. Thus the walls
are at LOD 100 theyre not modeled, but information about them can be obtained from elements that are modeled (the
floors) coupled with other information (area-based cost tables).
To continue with the wall example, a floor plan is often first laid out using generic walls. The walls can now be measured
directly, but the specific wall assemblies arent known and the quantity, thickness, and location measurements are
approximate. The walls are now at LOD 200. To step back to the massing model, if generic exterior walls are modeled
and can be measured directly, they are actually at LOD 200, even though there is little detail.
At LOD 300 the wall element is modeled as a specific composite assembly, with information about its framing, wallboard,
insulation if any, etc. The element is modeled at the thickness of the specified assembly, and is located accurately within
the model. Non-geometric information such as fire rating may also be attached as well. This means that its not
necessary to model every component of the wall assembly a solid model element with accurate thickness and location
and with the information usually included in a wall type definition satisfies the requirements of LOD 300.
At LOD 350 enough detail for installation and cross-trade coordination is included. For the wall example, this would
include such things as blocking, king studs, seismic bracing, etc.
LOD 400 can be thought of as similar to the kind of information usually found in shop drawings.

4.1 Caveats
There is no strict correspondence between LODs and design phases. Building systems are developed at different
rates through the design process for example, design of the structural system is usually well ahead of the design of
interior construction. At an early design phase milestone, the model will include many elements at LOD 200, but will also
include many at LOD 100, as well as some at 300, and possibly even 400.
Similarly, there is no such thing as an LOD ___ model. As previously stated, project models at any stage of delivery
will invariably contain elements and assemblies at various levels of development.

Updates of This Document

While this document is intended as a reference that can be cited in agreements such as contract and BIM execution
plans, it is recognized that the use of BIM in design and construction is evolving. To accommodate this evolution this
document will be updated periodically in clearly identifiable versions. Initially the target frequency is annually, but that
may change in the future. In addition, interim updates may be issued if needed.
