Benefits of LOD 400 BIM Model
- LOD 400 is the "Construction” stage where all the design models and drawings are converted into reality for better results.
- Resolved Clashes
- Easy installation and fabrication of the building components
- The details and information can be handed over directly to suppliers to manufacture of the building components.
- Construction Scheduling is better as teams are aware of the line-up of the project.
