Poll: Survey Snippet on Industry BIM Usage

August 15th, 2013

I hope everyone is enjoying their September issue of AUGIWorld magazine, especially the Survey spread. There is a lot of data on the industries and movement (good and bad), but, obviously, we only have so much space there.

One item I was curious enough to highlight here was the makeup of those doing, or not doing, BIM.

The question asked was “If applicable, what percentage of your company’s projects are BIM?” The below chart shows the percentage of each industry which answered with the options ‘All’ or ‘More than Half”, which is a significant adoption.

There has been a lot of discussion over the last few years about the benefits of BIM for Facility Management. Some folks call that BIM-washing, some folks call that optimism, others still call it far, far in the future or totally unnecessary. But, I see that 6% of those who claim more than half of all projects in BIM are FM types.

Of course, as someone working in Facilities, I was curious if there were obvious standout sub-specialties of FM. When I took the survey, I reported that we are using BIM, and as I work in the Engineering Department of a large hospital complex, I ticked off the options MEP and Healthcare. The following chart shows the industry subspecialties of the FM folks using BIM.

Now that we have taken a quick peek at those who are doing a lot of BIM and hit the other end of the spectrum to look at what percentage of each industry is doing no BIM.

Please come back again next summer and take part in the Salary Survey, and chime in on this month’s survey, highlighting how long you have been a member of AUGI!
