Are architects falling behind on BIM?
A study by the National Building Specification arm of RIBA Enterprises showed that 43% of architects and others in the industry had still not heard of BIM, let alone started using it. It also found that of the 13% of respondents who were using BIM only a third thought they would be using it for most of their projects in a year’s time.
RIBA president Ruth Reed said architects had to move fast on BIM – which enables the creation and sharing of electronic data models of buildings – in order to secure their position in the industry: “This has the power to put architects in the driving seat,” she added.
