BIM in Multifamily Design & Construction

Authors: Matt Jefferies, Swarnali Ghosh Dastider

In 2014, the National Association of Homebuilders conducted an initial survey about the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in residential construction. They found that BIM had not been widely adopted, but there was interest in future use. Four years later, the authors, Prof. Ghosh Dastider and Matt Jefferies at Washington University in St. Louis used a similar methodology to see what has changed. They found a significant increase in BIM’s application in the multifamily residential industry. Based on data collected from the re-conducted survey, the authors concluded with the future predictions on how use of BIM will accelerate in residential construction market in next few years. Few significant findings indicate increased use of BIM among contractors along with design built firms, as well as during the construction phase and life cycle analysis.
