We Offer Diverse Structural Modeling Services

See below a step by step process of outsourcing your Revit Structural Modeling

Step 1 - Choosing Level of Development (LOD)

LOD 200​

A basic model contatining general details. Elements are modelled with estimated amounts, size, shape, placement, and orientation in this general model. Non-geometric data can also be attached to model elements.

LOD 300

The model is visually represented as a single unit. The parameters such as size, shape, quantity and orientation of the design components are defined in the model. The non-graphical data is the building metadata. Material, fire resistance class, colour, cost, and manufacturer could all be associated to each component created in BIM software.

LOD 400

This is a fabrication model. The elements of LOD 400 model have precise geometry and parameters of buidling components in addition to the information integrated from LOD 300 mode. The information typically includes fabrication, assembly and detailing of design components.

LOD 500

LOD 500 is also know as As-Built model. This mode is typically used for operations, lifecycle and maintenance. Non-geometric information such as warranty dates, manufacture details, bills etc. is added to modelled LOD 400 components. The dimensions, form, placement, quantity, and orientation are same as the actual construction.

Step 2

Creating Conceptual Revit Structural Model

Our team of expert Structural BIM Modelers develops a general Structural 3D model using the column and other design elements details using the input drawings. This model is developed using the input drawings such as 2D layouts, sketches, or PDF drawings. We ask for these structural drawings from our clients before proceeding with Revit structural modeling. The purpose of the conceptual Structural model is for taking informed structural design before the design process moves to the detailed design stage.

Step 3

Detailed Revit Structural Modeling

We get approval on the conceptual structural model before proceeding to detailed Structural Revit modeling. At this stage, we add precise details of structural elements such as; Beams, Columns, Foundations, etc. We also add reinforcement details to structural elements depending upon the project requirement. The detailed structural model is quite comprehensive, containing the necessary design information as proposed by the BIM Structural Engineer.

Step 4

Quality Assessment of Structural 3d Modeling

Our engineers check the final Structural 3d model before delivering it to clients. The technicians review the final structural details, structural element locations, parameters, reinforcement details, and graphical information against the input structural layouts. We ensure that the final model is free from design errors, leaving no ambiguity in the structural 3D modeling process.

We Add Value to Structural 3D Modeling Projects

Our Revit technicians have a background in civil and structural engineering. We have a strong management team, holding Civil Engineering & Construction Management certifications from world-class institutions and professional experience from global construction consultancies.

Why Use Revit for Developing Structural Modeling?

Frequently Asked Questions By Our Clients

What is the structural model in Revit?

Structural model in Revit is a three-dimensional representation of structural elements such as; beam, column, slab etc. The structural model in Revit is used by project stakeholders to make informed decisions, quantity takeoffs, clash detection, 4d simulation and facilities management.

What is Revit structure used for?

Revit structure is used for developing structural 3d models including structural elements such as; columns, beams, reinforcement etc. Revit structure model is used to coordinate with Revit architectural and MEP models to ensure collaborative design development and superior construction management.

Why is Revit more powerful than CAD?

Revit offers a three-dimensional interface and predefined design elements for design development. The predefined design elements include beams, columns, walls, doors, windows etc. with standard specifications. Using Revit improves efficiency, precision and collaboration in the design development process.
