The Value of BIM - ROI for Designers, Construction Managers, and Building Owners

Terence Alcorn, Alcorn Associates

As our industry struggles to adjust to a standard of using 3D CADD platforms and CoBie standards for processing information, this presentation will provide the economic principles and business factors that are influencing the three very different markets of: designers, construction managers, and building owners.

An overview of each of the three distinct markets will be presented including past, present and future uses, adoption rate and history, and the impact on ROI.

The goal of the presentation is that if we understand the uniqueness of the economic and market forces for each of these three groups, we can then be more successful in working together to provide a better product and better outcome for each group and for the process as a whole.

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the economic market forces for designers in the adopting and using BIM and its impact on ROI.
  • To understand the economic market forces for construction managers in the adopting and using BIM and its impact on ROI.
  • To understand the economic market forces for building owners in the adopting and using BIM and its impact on ROI.
  • To understand the uniqueness of the three district markets and to provide the tools for a constructive process for implementing BIM and CoBie as it progresses from designer to construction manager to the building owner.
