The First 50 to register will receive The Business Value of BIM: Getting to the Bottom Line
The Business Value of BIM: Getting Building Information Modeling to the Bottom Line is the latest in McGraw-Hill Construction’s cutting-edge market intelligence SmartMarket series. Building on two previous publications Building Information Modeling (2008) and Interoperability (2007), the 2009 report finds that BIM adoption has grown dramatically, now in use by half the North American construction industry.
This report provides 52 pages of new insights on BIM adoption and the value that users are experiencing. For non-users the report explores their reasons for not implementing BIM and the factors that would motivate them to implement BIM in the future. For adopters the report probes deeper into their length of usage and level of expertise; their usage levels (% of projects) – now and in the future; the cost of their types of BIM investments they are making; and the return on investment (ROI) and business benefits that they are getting from using BIM. Six case studies and six industry perspectives provide additional insight into how companies today are implementing BIM within their organizations and deriving tangible business benefits as a result.
