Survey reveals industry split over BIM

6501604A new survey launched by standards and specifications expert NBS has revealed an ‘alarming lack of awareness’ of BIM across the construction industry.

The survey of 386 construction professionals, including 155 architects,showed that 43% were either unaware of or hadn’t used Building Information Modelling (BIM).

The results come just a month after chief government construction advisor Paul Morrell revealed plans to introduce BIM into the public procurement process.
Of the respondents to the NBS survey who were aware of BIM, only 10% were currently using it for the majority of projects.

More than half of those already using BIM said it had improved profitability and 81% said it had improved productivity.  Read More
