BIM Technology


DEVITA believes that Building Information Modeling (BIM) represents the future of construction design. Our BIM management team strives to find new and improved methods to utilize BIM for the benefit of your project. Our ongoing investments in software and training demonstrate our commitment to this valuable technology.

When properly utilized, BIM improves productivity and collaboration, reduces conflicts and changes during construction, detects construction clashes, and minimizes errors and rework.

Autodesk® Revit Software

The Autodesk® Revit line of digital prototyping software is designed specifically for BIM. Revit produces complete model-building designs allowing for the planning, construction, and management of higher-quality, more energy-efficient buildings using 3D visualizations.

At DEVITA, we utilize the Revit software suite to engineer and design more efficient mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural systems.

DEVITA recognizes the dynamic nature of this technology and the need to be on the leading edge of the design industry. To that end, we commit to training each designer and engineer in using the entire Autodesk suite to its full potential. Continuing education in Revit fosters greater collaboration, saves time and money for our clients, and addresses conflicts before project construction begins.


Navisworks project review software improves BIM coordination by combining design and construction information in one model using simulation and animation. Teams can create schedules from project models and import schedules and cost items from external applications. Engineers identify and correct clashes in context before construction, saving both time and money.  

Navisworks Clash Detection tool helps engineers find issues faster and, connected to the Collaborative Cloud, creates a powerful issue management system.

Cloud Collaboration

Cloud Collaboration enables design teams to share data and information in the earliest stages of a project, regardless of location, whether by laptop, desktop, tablet, or mobile. The ability to make real-time changes, facilitate effective and productive communication, track and monitor progress, and maintain data integrity directly impact project success.


ElumTools is the first and only fully integrated lighting calculation add-in that predicts the performance of electric lighting systems and daylight within Autodesk Revit, producing both beautiful and accurate lighting analysis.   

Interference Check

The interference check module inherent in Revit allows design professionals to resolve construction conflicts before construction begins. Performing a 3D interference check saves many hours and can minimize change orders and construction delays.

Levels of Development (LODs)

Measuring the content and reliability of BIM

DEVITA is committed to managing and exceeding client expectations. We measure the quality and reliability of our BIM models through multiple delivery stages using levels of development, or LODS.

LODS vary from the simple conceptual model of LOD 100, in which parameters such as area, height, volume, location, and position are defined, to the more complex LOD 500. Lod 500 is the field-verified model in which all elements, including quantity, dimensions, location, and orientation, have been checked in the completed building. “As-built models” fit into this category.

As BIM technology develops, DEVITA continues to employ LOD specifications to improve communication and supplement BIM execution plans.
