Prevalence and value of building information modeling uses in construction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Despite the growth in interest and rapid technological development of Building Information Modeling tools and processes, the adoption of modeling uses to advance construction tasks in the field have been slow in adoption. A list of 30 modeling uses for construction are presented, based upon previous research that develops a taxonomy of modeling uses for construction specific tasks. This research presents survey responses from over 250 industry practitioners regarding the status of industry adoption, perceived value, and level of difficulty to implement for a list of 30 modeling uses specific to construction. Findings highlight the differing perspectives by industry sector and role. In addition to the providing insights into the status of adoption, the paper will introduce the concept of methods as a key differentiator of construction modeling uses that influence their adoption and value in support of construction tasks.
