BIM Effects on Construction Key Performance Indicators (KPI) Survey

Jan 05, 2007

Recently, researchers from the M.E. Rinker, Senior, School of Building Construction from within the College of Design, Construction and Planning at the University of Florida launched a survey with the help of NIBS. The survey’s goal was to document experts’ perceived impact BIM has on the construction phase of the facility lifecycle using six commonly used metrics or KPIs in the construction industry. Hopefully, after documenting the experts’ opinions, further research can be oriented to adequately focus on the metrics where BIM has the strongest effects. The response rate was overwhelming, and although it was a simple survey, the information below shows tangible and significant evidence about the respondents’ perceptions about BIM’s effects on the construction phase of the facility lifecycle.
