The value of building Information modeling (BIM) in the U.S. building Industry

Being a company that provides BIM related outsourced services leveraging our proprietary B4UB™ technology, we are always on the lookout for case studies that assign a dollar value to the benefits delivered by our 3D modeling and clash detection service.

This paper presents findings from an industry-wide survey that was carried out in the spring of 2009. The study aims to understand the perceived value of BIM in the U.S. building industry, as seen by various participants in the industry. The survey specifically focuses on tangible benefits and costs associated with BIM use at the project level.
