Abstract

At the present time some firms in the construction industry are attempting to adopt a BIM methodology of working. Each of these attempts reflects a varying BIM adoption philosophy and inevitably different BIM technologies, implementation strategies and roadmaps. These attempts are motivated to attain competitive advantages for product delivery in the market place. The question of what is the best method of adopting BIM has not yet been answered. That is to say, a standard method remains to be identified, that will benchmark the different BIM adoption strategies by comparing the efficiency gains in each case. Through developing a standard benchmarking method stakeholders will be able to decide on the most appropriate strategies for themselves. This paper explains the live experience of BIM adoption in a KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnership) project, undertaken between the University of Salford and John McCall Architects practicing in the housing and regeneration fields, with a particular focus on a set of KPIs that have been developed and tested through the action research strategy in the project. Weighting of these KPI's has been developed from an architectural business perspective.
