BIM Promotion Plan in Civil Engineering through the Analysis of the User Recognition Changes
BIM, which recently emerged as a hot issue in the construction industry, is being recognized as a new breakthrough for the industry. However it is now in crisis due to the stagnant construction business and the decrease in the amount of orders. Already, various studies are being conducted to introduce BIM to architecture both domestically and abroad, but in civil engineering projects, unlike in construction projects, the work system is non-repetitive, horizontal, and atypical, and the scope of the project tasks is so wide that the amount of information generated is vast. As a result, construction companies and designers feel burdened by the initial investment cost for BIM construction and have doubts about its cost-effectiveness. As such, to implement BIM in domestic civil engineering projects, this study determined the BIM technology level of designers in civil engineering and analyzed the changes in their awareness of BIM from the past so as to determine the obstacles to BIM activation in civil engineering and to propose a solution for such. The results of this study are expected to be used as the basic data for setting the direction of the research on the standard for introducing BIM to civil engineering and on the development of a receipt inspection and verification system for supplied products.
