“A study commissioned by the Australian Government’s Built Environment Industry Innovation Council has found that BIM improves the productivity of the building sector significantly.”
“Widespread adoption of BIM will result in cleaner, healthier buildings – both new and renovated – with improvements in material consumption, energy efficiency, carbon emissions and the productivity of occupants. On average, an owner could save up to 10 per cent on the cost of their building,” Senator Carr said.
