Have you encountered or used building information modeling (BIM) on any of your projects? Have you considered its use but backed off? Are you interested in BIM but don't know where to begin?
BIM seems to be highly regarded by those who have made the transition. Owners cite facility management benefits in addition to lower costs. Contractors are finding benefits in improved coordination and scheduling with less claims and change orders. Architects and engineers find BIM allows projects to be completed faster while making it easier to make design changes. But BIM may not be suited for all projects, or all construction professionals. We here at ConstructionPro Network are interested in your feedback, no matter where you are on the BIM scale. Please take a few minutes to complete our second annual BIM Experience survey.
