Building Information Modeling Report Available Online
October 26, 2009

ASFE The Best People On Earth (ASFE) recently sponsored a McGraw-Hill study on interoperability and Building Information Modeling (BIM). As the study report demonstrates, BIM adoption has grown dramatically and is now used by half the construction industry.

Key findings from the report include:

  • Half of the industry is now using BIM or BIM-related tools; 75% more than in 2007.
  • The U.S. West Coast leads BIM adoption with a 56% rate, far ahead of the Northeast (38%). Canada represents the North American average of 48%.
  • Current BIM users of all skill levels expect to double their application of it on projects over the next two years.
  • Users who formally measure the benefits of BIM see greater ROI.
  • Those with higher BIM skill levels report over twice the ROI of beginners.
  • Experienced users are leveraging their BIM capabilities to win new work over their competitors, and they rate this as among the greatest current benefits of BIM.

The report Business of BIM is available for download at the McGraw-Hill Construction BIM Special Section web page.
