The Business Value of BIM for Infrastructure 2017

This study demonstrates the value BIM provides for owners, engineers and contractors in the infrastructure sector in the US, UK, France and Germany. In addition to the data on a study of BIM for transportation infrastructure, it provides a more comprehensive view of BIM for infrastructure through articles describing BIM use on specific road, airport and rail projects, and on the use of BIM across and beyond the lifecycle of the asset, including creating models of existing assets for planning and using data from models for operations and asset management.

Data from the study of transportation infrastructure in the US, UK, France and Germany includes:

  • The increasing rates of implementation among BIM users
  • The benefits of using BIM, the investments they are making to enhance those benefits, and its perceived ROI
  • The perspective of non-users, including their attitudes toward BIM and factors that could drive adoption
  • Individual profiles of the top findings in the four countries featured
