NBS has launched the 10th annual NBS BIM survey, marking a decade of tracking BIM adoption in the UK
The NBS Building Information Modelling (BIM) Report 2020 aims to track not only the adoption of BIM over the past decade, but the construction industry’s digital journey as a whole.
The annual report has documented awareness and adoption of BIM from little more than 10% in 2011 to almost 70% in 2019.
The 2019 report represented the views of nearly 1,000 industry professionals. It reflected on the launch of the ISO standards, showing that 16% of organisations had already started to use the ISO 19650 series of standards.
‘Last year’s report showed a pause in the growth of BIM adoption as the industry consolidates and matures in its integration of BIM,’ said NBS Innovation Director Stephen Hamil. ‘Will BIM adoption have grown in 2020? Is BIM becoming the norm for the construction industry?
‘Alongside BIM, the use of new digital technologies is transforming construction. In this survey, we look beyond BIM to some of the new technologies being used in the built environment. The survey will look at the current state of the art alongside what the future might look like for digital construction.’
The NBS National BIM Survey 2020 is open until 1 March. A pre-release report is sent to all participants, so those taking part will be among the first to have access to the findings.
