BIM Practices in Highway Infrastructure: Global Benchmarking Program Report

The FHWA Global Benchmarking Study on Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Infrastructure was conducted to document evolving trends in BIM implementations in BIM-mature nations and their public highway infrastructure agencies, with a focus on understanding how other countries are using BIM for infrastructure to better deliver transportation projects, manage assets, and provide related services with a view to benchmark and advance U.S. practice.
