The annual industry wide survey, carried out by NBS, provides the most comprehensive and accurate picture of UK BIM (Building Information Modelling) and its growing influence within the built environment industry.

NBS's National BIM Survey was completed in late 2011 by nearly 1,000 construction professionals representing a range of business sizes and disciplines from across the industry including architecture, engineering and surveying.
Over 200 RIBA members took were among the participants, making sure the views of the membership came across.
Highlights of the findings include:
78% agree the BIM is the future of project information, though how that future will look is uncertain, with 4 out of five agreeing that the industry is not yet clear enough of what BIM actually is

Almost a third (31%) of construction professionals are now using BIM – up from 13% in 2010

Three quarters of those construction professionals currently aware of BIM predict they will be using it on some projects by the end of 2012, and almost 19 out of 20 people expect to be using it in five years' time

More than 80% agreed BIM increases the coordination of construction documents, with 65% of those using the technology saying BIM delivered cost efficiencies

The report also features several articles form leaders in BIM developments, including:
