Lifecycle BIM for Infrastructure: A Business Case for Project Delivery and Asset Management

Building information modeling (BIM) for infrastructure is finding success in Europe and Asia as an asset lifecycle management methodology that includes advanced digital tools, large data repositories, and new business processes. Indeed, governing bodies in the European Union and United Kingdom have recognized the efficiencies and cost savings associated with BIM and have legislatively required its incorporation into the public infrastructure procurement process. Similarly, because of its potential for unifying all data phases of highway infrastructure assets, BIM has garnered significant interest in the United States, with several state departments of transportation (DOTs) having already moved toward its adoption. Research is needed to evaluate the business case for BIM in the United States by quantifying how adopting enterprise-wide BIM systems can lead to increased agency efficiencies and improved cost savings, and foster advanced, comprehensive lifecycle management of enterprise assets. The objective of this research is to evaluate the business case for BIM in the United States by quantifying how adopting enterprise-wide BIM systems can provide increased agency efficiencies and foster advanced, comprehensive lifecycle management of enterprise assets. The data for this research shall be gathered using domestic and international examples, with the findings targeted for the U.S. market and DOT stakeholders.
