Building information modeling (BIM) is a set of technologies, processes and policies enabling multiple stakeholders to collaboratively design, construct and operate a Facility in virtual space. As a term, BIM has grown tremendously over the years and is now the 'current expression of digital innovation' across the construction industry (BIM Dictionary).
For those who do not know me personally, my name is Amarnath CB (Founder, India BIM Association). India BIM Association (IBIMA) is a not for profit organization and it aims at promoting the use and development of BIM in Indian Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operation (AECO) Industry and academia. We at IBIMA are currently working on understanding the status of BIM implementation in India AECO sector. I thought this might be a good opportunity to get feedback from respected Industry members who specialize and/ or practice in these areas. Your organization has been identified as a progressive one that may already be working with BIM in some capacity. As a result, your organization has been included in this BIM survey. Please take a moment (approximate time for questionnaire filling is less than 15 min) and complete the enclosed survey.
This survey is directed to architects, engineers, contractors/sub contractors, facility managers, owners and other stakeholders involved in Indian AECO Industry. If you have not had experience with BIM yet, feel free to answer the questions to the best of your ability or you can forward the link of this survey to another person in your organization who would be better able to answer questions. Your organization’s information will be solely to provide a synthesis of results and analysis for the purposes of the research at IBIMA. These results will not refer to any respondents by name or organization. The results may be published locally or internationally, and the results of the study might also be considered for future research purposes. I appreciate your participation in this project. If you have any questions about the survey, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued help and support.
