In 2015, Dodge Data & Analytics released a SmartMarket Report, “Measuring the Impact of BIM on Complex Buildings” focused on quantifying how BIM is contributing to improved outcomes in the stages of design and construction for complex buildings. In order to quantify, Dodge performed an online survey of 391 owners, architects, and contractors who indicated that their company uses BIM and that they had a moderate or higher level of knowledge about the use of BIM at their company.
