The use of BIM , or Building Information Modeling, has grown tremendously since it developed from a more traditional design program in the early 2000s into the robust, multi-dimensional tool of today. Now viewed as nearly ubiquitous in vertical development, BIM is poised for widespread use in the infrastructure world. Adoption levels vary across the globe by organization size and by project type, but snapshots of data help tell the story.
