Model is not viable for the operations and maintenance stage till it is efficiently converted into an as-built model. An as-built model has various requirements, first of all it should be geometrically commensurate to actual site construction and secondly it should be having relevant basic information about all the building components which can be later enhanced at the 6D Levels.
According to NBS and the level of detail specifications, a model which is not field verified is not an as built model. Therefore for a model to upgraded from the LOD 400 stage to LOD 500 stage, the field verification and ensuring that things are pertaining to actual site construction is very important.
We at Techture have relevant expertise in the field of as built BIM modelling through both the procedures, laser scanning as well as red markup drawings. We have efficiently completed as built BIM modelling of several developments including hospitality, residential and industrial projects of more than 3 lakh sq. feet .
