BIM Maturity Assessment

BIM is transforming the way that we design all types of infrastructure to improve safety, optimize schedules, and lower costs during construction, as well as, ensure better asset performance throughout the entire life cycle.

Assessing the maturity of BIM adoption on a project or within your organization can provide insight to ways to improve processes and better take advantage of the benefits of BIM.  The BIM Maturity Measurement tool is an Excel-based tool designed to help measure your understanding of BIM and help guide you towards BIM Level 2. It is a discipline-agnostic tool that seeks to measure just how much a project has used BIM and how successful this has been.  It will also provide highlights on areas for improvement.

The tool is designed to:

  • measure the maturity of different aspects of BIM adoption within a project
  • to highlight successes and areas for improvement
  • demonstrate current capabilities not future aspirations

The tool will help you identify how far you have come and on the journey to level 2 and your current position.  It can be completed by anybody, or any organisation, using BIM in a project.
