Around the World with BIMAECbytes Archived Article (May 9, 2012)

There is no doubt that BIM adoption in the AEC industry has come a long way since the term was introduced in 2002—most of the larger firms are using BIM on many of their projects, and it has come part of the standard lexicon of the AEC industry. We would be hard-pressed to find anyone working in the industry who has not heard of BIM. But most of us have a rather myopic view of BIM; we are aware of what’s going on with BIM implementation in our own countries, but not that much about what is happening in other countries. This article attempts to capture the key developments in BIM implementation in different countries around the world, so that we have a better global perspective on BIM.
