Abstract

Building Information Model (BIM) technology has received much attention in research, commercial software, and industrial practice. Yet its use in practice represents only early adopters, as most potential users remain unaware, uncertain of its meaning, or unconvinced of its value. This research examined the business case for BIM adoption. It conducted several detailed case studies of projects that had adopted BIM, and developed a business case structure for analyzing the broad range of issues identified. This business case structure, described in this paper, derived from an initiative called Val IT, was further used to propose a tool that individual companies can use to develop business case analysis of their own BIM adoption opportunities.
