NBS has launched the 10th annual NBS BIM survey

Latest News Fri, Jan 10, 2020 3:24 PM

Ten years on from the initial survey, the NBS BIM Report 2020 is set to not only track the adoption of BIM, but also focus on the construction industry’s digital journey.

For a decade, the annual report has tracked BIM, documenting awareness and adoption from little more than 10% in 2011, to almost 70% in 2019.

The 2019 report represented the views of nearly 1,000 industry professionals and reflected on the launch of the ISO standards, showing that 16% of organisations had already started to use the ISO 19650 series of standards.

NBS Innovation Director, Stephen Hamil said: “We have now been monitoring BIM adoption at NBS for a decade. Last year’s report showed a pause in the growth of BIM adoption as the industry consolidates and matures in its integration of BIM. Will BIM adoption have grown in 2020? Is BIM becoming the norm for the construction industry? We’ll cover this, and more, in the 2020 report.

"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.”

You can complete this year’s NBS National BIM Survey, open until the 1 March, here: theNBS.com/bim-survey-2020

A pre-release report is sent to all participants, so those taking part will be among the first to have access to the findings.

The NBS Chorus specification system alongside the full range of NBS BIM tools and resources supports the construction industry in its transition to a digital world.
