China is generating an impressive variety of world-class projects throughout the country and increasingly applying innovative processes using Building Information Modeling (BIM) that both enhance design and improve construction productivity. Since 2007, Dodge Data & Analytics has been tracking the business impacts of technology advances through its SmartMarket Report series, with a particular focus on how BIM is transforming the design and construction process in Asia, Australia, North America and Western Europe.
This report analyzes survey data collected from Chinese-based architects and contractors who are currently using BIM on projects, and also from those who have not yet become involved with BIM. Among BIM users, the report examines their level of involvement, benefits, investments, perceived value and future plans for building information modeling. Among non-users, it explores their reasons for non-adoption and triggers that will initiate adoption. Among the key findings:
This is a very exciting era for the design and construction economy in China. As exceptional projects proliferate throughout all regions, owners, architects and contractors can leverage new model-based technologies and processes to improve design, productivity, efficiency, quality, safety and their own competitiveness.
