The new Building Information Modeling (BIM) Project Execution Plan Guide, sponsored by the Charles Pankow Foundation and BIMForum is now available for free download. The guide was created with the purpose of introducing BIM project concepts to teams on small to mid-sized projects who have no previous experience with the concept.

The research includes a survey of the thousands of individuals who have previously attended BIMForum conferences since 2008 to document their current usage of BxP and BIM in general. This research will be conducted under the direction of the BIMForum BIM Execution Plan (BxP) taskforce. The BIMForum’s research includes online assessments, online video interviews, as well as in person interviews.

This work will also collaborate with the Structural Engineering Institute’s (SEI) BIM Committees national BIM Survey data from 2005 to 2016 and the National Institute of Steel Detailer’s research in BIM and BxP usage in structural steel fabrication modeling. The BxP research would also include collaboration with the Precast Concrete Institute (PCI), BIM for Masonry (BIM-M) and the American Concrete Institute (ACI). The effort also includes the input from the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), American Institute of Architects, and the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
