Benefits of BIM for Infrastructure
(As per "The Business Value of BIM for Infrastructure 2017", Dodge Data & Analytics SmartMarket Report with survey results from the US, UK, France, and Germany)
of users realize positive value from BIM use.
of BIM users list "repeatable project delivery process" as a leading BIM business benefit.
of engineers use BIM for authoring models.
of engineers and contractors use BIM to improve team collaboration, stakeholder communication, and project outcomes.
of engineers and contractors report owner requests for BIM on at least some of their projects.
of BIM non-users express a future intent to use BIM for transportation infrastructure projects.
Industry expert views on BIM
We are looking at BIM as a component of advanced modeling. We have to start being able to do geospatial queries on information from a portal and being able to drive down until you eventually are getting information that you originally defined and populated through BIM.
CAD/BIM Community of Practice Leader, US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
"When you elect to use a BIM type of approach, it now gives you a choice of different value streams to pursue…That is something that I believe resonates strongly with many of our owners and clients."
Cory Dippold, PE
Vice President, Digital Delivery Services, Mott MacDonald
"If used properly, (with BIM…) we can extend the work that’s being done on construction through asset management into getting a much better handle on real time performance of transportation infrastructure."
Professor Tim Broyd
BSc, PhD, CEng, FREng, FICE, FRSA, President, Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), UK
"We believe the next era is coordination through a connected BIM process…there is a real opportunity to transform the industry, not only from design to construction, but the entire work practice and project delivery process."
