MetadataShow full item record
For more than ten years Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been one of the most important innovation trends in AEC sectors to approach building design holistically, to enhance communication and collaboration among all key stakeholders, to increase productivity, and to improve overall building quality. Nowadays, BIM and related standards are already mandatory for publicly funded projects in some EU countries, but most of them have to still adopt. Italy is not leading country in BIM adoption. The national reports regarding status of BIM use and its business value are missing. Therefore, this paper aims at defining the first status quo on BIM implementation and stakeholders’ integration in the AEC sector in the Province of South Tyrol. The questionnaire survey among the most important firms in the territory were carried out to gather data. This paper provides the qualitative study and key finding regarding: a) awareness and status of BIM use; b) benefits of BIM; c) barriers and issues to BIM adoption; d) stakeholders’ involvement.
