Mayo Clinic BIM Manager – Project Model Development Specification (MDS)

View-Download Class Materials from Mayo Clinic Model Development Specification (MDS)

I attended the AU 2013 class; which detailed the Mayo Clinic Modeling Development Specification (MDS) –developed by Mayo Clinic BIM Program Manager, Andy Jizba (Arizona) and David Paul Wilkinson, Autodesk Consulting Services.

Spreadsheet Itemizes LOD for Each Phase and Stakeholder in the Mayo Clinic Model Development Specification (MDS)

Andy Jizba | Building Information Management Program Manager | Mayo Clinic - Arizona

The purpose of the Model Development Specification (MDS) is to define how Building Information Modeling (BIM) will be implemented and managed on both current and future projects.

Critical to the development of the BIM is a complete understanding of how the model will be used during the course of the design, construction, and life-cycle management of the building.

While Level of Development (LOD) gains traction for Revit component and project modeling; Mayo Clinic has created a contractual deliverable process that defines

  • a mutually defined LOD for each discipline, by each discipline — based on an initial, project kick-off meeting with the owner.
  • how the owner plans to use BIM for the Building’s Lifecycle Management and Operations & Maintenance (O&M).
  • LOD roles and responsibilities at each phase of the project: Lead, Support & Use
  • how to use Revit family LOD shared parameters; to monitor & manage a project’s LOD progress for each discipline and phase –to minimize rework of the model.
  • a method that allows each stakeholder to integrate their interdependent Revit-BIM modeling standards into the project standards.

  2. We found high value when connecting the LOD to the project bid packages as the design phases on today’s projects seem to slide based on scope of work. The bid package milestones have specific needs that translates into the BIM LOD deliverables. This helps drive improved integration between design and construction teams.
