The use of BIM in the industry grew over the past 12 months, with take-up growing at its highest rate since 2014. 

According to the latest survey by construction technical information provider NBS, nearly three-quarters of just over 800 people polled said that they were using BIM. In 2011, the year NBS first started collecting the data, the figure was just 13%.
