AbstractThis report is about how the ROI has been interpreted and compiled by a number of construction companies that have utilized BIM in their projects. Based on real life construction data, the perceived value of BIM has been derived. It focuses on quantifiable benefits as well as the costs associated with BIM?s usage at the project level. Our study concludes that companies, in general, use dissimilar metrics for measuring the ROI, which includes qualitative measures also. This study pins down tangible ROI measures, quantitative in nature, which may be used by most companies contemplating the use of BIM.
