Abstract

The Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry has undergone a significant and radical transformation in its design and documentation process as it evolved from the days of the drafting board to today's Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. As BIM remains the center of this transformation, it is important to keep both practitioners and academicians updated on the current state-of-adoption of BIM in construction projects. Thus, this paper presents the results of a BIM survey conducted on 125 respondents representing 83 companies located in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Netherlands, and Canada. The types of the targeted companies varied between Owner, Owner's Representative (OR), Architect/Engineer (A/E), General Contractor/Construction Management (GC/CM), Mechanical Contractor, Electrical Contractor, Sheet Metal Contractor, Plumbing Contractor, Fire Protection Contractor, Structural Steel Contractor, and Facility Manager. Findings of the paper elaborate on why companies are using and requiring BIM, why companies are not using and requiring BIM, and how BIM is being used by the different company types across the project lifecycle.
