Survey Results 

Questionnaires are valuable tools offering a quick and cost-effective way to gather information from a large number of stakeholders. For us, the focus was the AECO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operation) industry, including architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners.

Conducting the questionnaire in all partner locations (Romania, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Denmark) allowed us to gather information regarding the industry digitalization needs, allowed us to get a better understanding of the blocking points in global BIM adoption, be able to provide valuable insights into the current state of the industry and inform future BIM adoption and implementation strategies.

The main advantages of using a questionnaire are that it provides a standardized and structured method to collect information, making it easier to compare and analyze data, it offers anonymity to participants, encouraging them to share their true opinions and needs and that it allows for targeted questions to be asked, ensuring that specific information related to BIM is captured.
