Many design and construction professionals—and also their clients—are justifiably frustrated that promised results from BIM tools are not being more readily achieved. The reason for this delay is that so-called higher uses of BIM—analyses, including scheduling, cost estimating, energy, sustainability, facilities management, and facility operations—require not only collaboration on integrated teams, but also the collection and strategic application of building data. Another factor is higher-resolution communications.
