- Project Leader
This project will develop understanding of the business drivers and barriers to digital building information models adoption in the Australian property, construction and facilities management (FM) sectors. This project will also show how the CRC is working across our industry to create industry and national economic benefit. To enable this, the objectives of this project are to:
- confirm and investigate the nature of economic, process and industry constraints to BIM adoption
- identify business strategies, cost and benefit models that may support adoption of BIM in the property, design, construction and FM industry. This will be based on case studies from this industry as well as other industries and interviews with business leaders and users of advanced applications of CAD in the industry.
- propose different business cases for adoption of BIM models.
There has not been an investigation that has focussed specifically on BIM and business benefits specifically in relation to diminishing the uncertainties regarding economic benefits. A more effective adoption will be developed for industry.
