BIM Survey – More Contractors than Architects using #BIM

 

A recent, still to be published survey shows some very interesting BIM usage stats:

 

  • The percentage of companies using BIM  is now 71%, which is a jump when comparing previous statistics, with 17% in 2007 and 49% in 2009.
  • More contractors (74%) are using BIM than architects (70%) for the first time.
  • 49% of BIM users have five or more years experience using it.
  • Almost 40% of BIM users are heavily committed to using BIM, doing over 60% of their work in BIM.

This new research conducted by McGraw-Hill Construction shows that there is a rapid increase of Building Information Modeling (BIM) usage by architects, engineers, contractors and owners in, you may have guessed –  North America.

But for us here in the UK, I find this interesting:

  • With increased use, will BIM prove to be more attractive, and deliver more benefits to contractors than architects?
  • With our current push on BIM with the 2016 target for level 2 BIM, could we see usage in the UK at a similar 71% level?
  • By time we do get to 2016, we will have a good stock of experience of BIM users, ie those adopting BIM or BIM approaches now!
  • As we move more to documentation systems and working in collaborative spaces, working predominantly within BIM’s could be the way we will work within AEC sector in the very near future

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to understand
    so much about this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I believe that you simply could do wigh some % to drive the message house a little bit,
    but instead of that, that is great blog. A great read. Iwill definitely be back.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has
    83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
