BIM is the future - but what about the present?

7 March 2012

78% say that BIM is the 'future of project information' but is it the present?

Results from an annual industry-wide survey undertaken by NBS (part of RIBA Enterprises) have provided the most  comprehensive and accurate picture of UK BIM (Building Information Modelling) and its growing influence within the built environment industry.

Unquestionably one of the hottest topics in construction, the adoption of BIM has recently been described as 'unstoppable' by Paul Morrell, the government’s chief construction adviser, who has reiterated over the last 12 months, the intention to make BIM compulsory for public projects.  

NBS’s National BIM Survey was completed in late 2011 by nearly 1,000 construction professionals representing a range of business sizes and disciplines from across the industry. 158 CIAT members responded to the survey (19% of the total respondents).

Key findings include:

  • Almost a third (31%) of construction professionals are now using BIM – up from 13% in 2010
  • More than 80% agreed BIM increases the coordination of construction documents, with 65% of those using the technology saying BIM delivered cost efficiencies
