Ronald F. Dellaria, the inspiration behind a guide to help eliminate "BIM babble," is passionate about paperless deliverables. He predicts they will define a new standard of care in the buildings sector.
To that end, the volunteer LOD Working Group of the Associated General Contractors' BIM Forum released last summer the Dellaria-inspired guide, "Level of Development Specification." The spec, offered free of charge, is like architectural graphic standards for building information modeling. It is intended to facilitate targeted model creation and management and provide confidence for BIM users.
