The NBS (National Building Specification) has launched its sixth NBS National BIM Survey, the results of which are due to be published in Spring 2016.
Since 2011, the NBS National BIM Survey has charted the rise in the use and awareness of BIM, as well as highlighting the challenges people face. This year’s survey has been timed in order to get a real picture of how the Government mandate has affected that adoption.
Designed for UK construction professionals and policy makers, the 2015 survey found awareness of BIM was almost universal at 95%, yet the adoption figures reported a slight fall – from 54% to 48%.
The report suggested that this could be because the ‘Late Majority’ has succeeded the Early Adopters and Innovators, and so the 2016 survey is expected to show that the adoption has accelerated in the last 12 months as the mandate starts to loom.
The survey is supported by a broad range of professional bodies that act as our partners in the research.
