I am a PhD researcher at the School of Architecture within the University of Sheffield (UK), under the supervision of Dr Mohamad Kassem and Dr John Kawalek.
We are conducting, as part of an on-going research, a survey of architectural organisations that have already adopted Building Information Modelling (BIM). Our survey aims (1) to identify the drivers and factors that affected your organisation’s decision to adopt BIM, and (2) to understand the influence of and correlation between drivers and factors, emergent from different environments (external environment, internal environment, innovation characteristic), on the adoption decision. The participants should be knowledgeable about the process that led to the adoption of BIM within their organisations.
Your input into our research is really valuable and we are inviting you to kindly participate in our survey. The questionnaire will take less than 12 minutes to complete and can be found at:
The research is conducted in accordance with the Sheffield University policy on data storage and it has been ethically approved by the School of Architecture. Your responses will be anonymised and neither your name nor your organisation’s affiliation will be linked with the research materials (dissertations, publications, reports).
We greatly appreciate your support and we thank you for your contribution.

I am a PhD researcher at the School of Architecture within the University of Sheffield (UK), under supervision of Dr John Kawalek, Dr Mohamad Kassem, and Dr Stephen Walker. My research aims to investigate the drivers and factors that influence the decisions of architectural organisations to adopt Building Information Modelling (BIM).
I am a final year student in the BIMM MSc program at Middlesex University, London via Chicago. My thesis is looking at how BIM can be developed to address the unique challenges that exist in maintaining heritage assets. The 1st stage of the process was to discover common themes pertaining to BIM, Heritage, and ongoing maintenance.
The goal of this 2nd stage survey is to inform the development of a framework for a BIM based Typological Classification System. This system would be designed to enhance the knowledge and renovation of existing assets. It would also enable other recognized BIM benefits (e.g. reduction in time, cost savings, enhanced coordination of efforts). The goal is that by providing the Heritage sector a bespoke toolset, greater BIM adoption can occur, and continuing development spurred on.
Even if you have little to no experience with BIM your input is still valuable. By understanding better what your needs and concerns are we can help develop tools that make BIM more accessible to everyone
Please take a few minutes and complete this brief survey by March 31st, and forward it on to anyone else you may know! All responses are anonymous.
Your assistance with this project is greatly appreciated!

Your participation in this survey is earnestly requested in order to obtain meaningful results, I am conducting the following survey to give the BIM users guidance about the 4D implementation and the different 4D products features/ capabilities based on the market reviews and experts feedback.
Please, I am a PhD student at Loughborough University and I am doing a survey regarding my topic as illustrated below. Please, can you fill it and pass it to your colleagues.
Please, kindly can I have 15-20 min of your time to take a survey for study purposes regarding (integrating BIM/GIS to improve collaboration in railway projects)
your participation is very important to me and I will be very grateful. the survey is in the link below:
(Please, can you pass it to your friends)
Thank you in advance.
Today there are numerous BIM guidelines, protocols and file formats to support the use BIM data on projects. For example IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) was developed by buildingSMART International as a neutral, non-proprietary data format used to describe, exchange and share information; COBie (Construction Operations Building information exchange) is an international standard relating to managed asset information including space and equipment.
Thank you in advance,
Andrew Stanford MBA Dissertation Questionnaire. I am currently an Associate for a property consultancy within the Built Environment sector responsible for implementing digital processes / technologies. I am interested in understanding how clients can gain greater value from implementing such approaches on their built assets.
I'm currently undertaking an investigation project regarding the changing paradigms of the creative process of design for construction with the rise of BIM. For this project, I'm contacting as many industry leaders as possible and kindly asking them to fill out a short survey which shouldn't take more than 2 or 3 minutes. This will help me quantify some of the key themes and conceptions around the use of BIM in Design. I feel it is very important that industry leaders make an effort to collaborate with the academic community and share their knowledge and experience so that the new generations of professionals can build upon that.

Thank you very much in advance for your surely valuable time.
BIM is believed to be a powerful tool in order to help the construction industry players in managing risks in construction procurement. However, BIM also exposes its users to risks when barriers in sharing information are reduced. The focus of the study is on the newly reformed PF2 projects as it is anticipated that BIM will be used in PF2 projects in the near future. Therefore, this study attempts to develop a contractual risks management framework for PF2 projects implementing BIM.
Thus, I would like to invite you to participate in this survey to share your views and opinion based on your knowledge and experiences in BIM, PPP, PFI or PF2 projects. This survey is part of the ongoing research work with the objectives:
1. To identify the critical success factors for the implementation of BIM in PF2 projects.
2. To examine the significance of impact of BIM risk factors on PF2 projects.
You are invited to fill up the survey form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/18sja1oZkEbK2DJ-eumObH4KQHK0Lz9FtpcPodWcVcuY/viewform
The questionnaire survey should take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. If you have any enquiries on the survey, please do not hesitate to contact either Siti Nora Habib (Tel: 07459279357, and email:[email protected]) or Dr. Yusuf Arayici (email: [email protected]).
Your response to this questionnaire would be crucial to the research.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
