As building parts and capabilities developed in the building model gains an increasing importance for the overall construction business, there is a need for unique descriptions of the content of the building model in regards to the objects geometry (level of detail and precision) and capabilities.
The need typically occurs:
- In moments of agreement where parties need to come to terms with the level of detail, precision and information regarding objects. This is typically agreed upon and documented in a model deliverance specification.
- When supporting the project process, where there often is a need for determining when certain information should be delivered and by whom.
For the purpose of establishing a simple method to indicate content, DiKon has taken starting point in cuneco’s general levels of information, which is developed on an overall informational level.
In order to enrich and concretize this work we have developed a catalogue of the most often used building categories (22 categories) along with their specific level of 3D detail and information/capabilities for each informational level.
By referring to an informational level one obtains an exact and uniform understanding of which information each object should contain.
The model delivery specification hereby specifies who should deliver specific information within the model in regards to the agreed stages of the building process.
DiKon’s model delivery specification consists of two publications:
- DiKon’s Delivery Specification_DK (excel) – for building models_DK
- DiKon’s Building Parts Specifications_EN – for selected building parts in building models
The model delivery specification is free to be download and used by all parties within construction if mentioned that the tool is developed by DiKon – Digital Convergence.
DiKon’s Delivery Specification needs to be adapted to each specific project!
The tool is an example of how an agreement can be structures and the six member organizations of DiKon have all used the tool in connection with relevant projects.
When utilizing the tool it is important to read the introduction/user, which can be found in both the PDF file and in the Excel file.
