Building Information Modeling (BIM) is having a profound affect on construction industry project delivery and processes. Previous MHC research has shown that within the commercial building sector, the use of BIM is rising rapidly especially among the contractor community. The new SmartMarket Report, The Business Value of BIM for Infrastructure, examines how BIM is being used on infrastructure projects including roads, bridges, dams, water treatment facilities, power plants and transportation facilities. The report examines the use of BIM on these projects, the drivers and obstacles to future use and the impact that BIM is having on infrastructure project teams as well as internal and external collaboration. The study also looks at BIM’s impact on building processes including the increased use of prefabrication and modularization as well as the overall affect that BIM and these processes have on improving productivity factors including schedule, cost, quality, sustainability and safety.
The 60-page report contains new market research data as well as several cases studies highlighting the use of BIM on different infrastructure projects and thought leader interviews that demonstrate the differing perspectives around infrastructure BIM. Download your free copy today.
