Description

Three dimensional building information modeling (BIM) is a technology becoming more popular in the construction industry. This technology is being used by more contractors every project. BIM is a concept of constructing a 3-D model along with information about the construction project. BIM is used to better understand the project and see potential issues before they arise. Because of BIM’s potential value, contractors in Minnesota may look into this technology, but like any new technology there are issues with implementation. Our goal is to discover what challenges a contractor can expect during the integration of BIM into their projects. Our research will consist of surveys directed to contractors that have already implemented BIM. Knowing the challenges contractors faced, we will be able to discover what contractors can expect while considering BIM.
