Now a days Building information modeling is used extensively in the Building & construction industry. As the technology radically upgrade the building design & construction process the productivity also increased resulting to a high ROI. ROI indicates the gains anticipated from an investment against the cost of the investment.
Here comes the question - how BIM can get ROI for an organization.
A more extensive ROI on the adoption of BIM could include profit gains from; increased billing, project quality and increased repeat business, improved communication and client presentations, links to external analysis applications, and so on.
BIM can also shift the time split between traditional design and documentation and decrease the hours spent on producing construction documents to a great extent.
In CAD's recent online survey, over half the respondents experienced productivity gains of over 50% using the BIM Model building information modeling solution and 17% experienced productivity gains of over 100%.
Due to the large data spread, it is hard to conclude a specific range for BIM ROI. In some projects, BIM savings were measured using 'real' construction phase 'direct' collision detection cost avoidance, and in other projects, savings were computed using 'planning' or 'value analysis' phase cost avoidance.
