BIM-mognad på Island : En studie av entreprenörer och underentreprenörer (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In the last decade, BIM has provided the construction industry with countless tools that canbe used during all construction phases (Kam et al., 2016). Implementation of BIM in Icelandat the beginning was driven by the heroic’s individuals. In recent years leadership within theAEC has recognized the opportunities BIM can provide.The aim of this thesis is to map BIM maturity of contractors and sub-contractors in Iceland.The results found that there is a lack of awareness about BIM among small to medium sizedcontractors as well as among sub-contractors. Among the larger contractors and designersmaturity is higher then found in the last study performed for GDDA 2013 (Valdimarssonand Kjartansdóttir, 2013). Recent requirement from large public project owners that requiresBIM has speed up implementation.

Abstract [sv]

Under de senaste årtiondena har BIM erbjudit byggbranschen otaliga verktyg att använda i samtliga faser avbyggprocessen. Implementeringen av BIM på Island har nyligen börjat och drivs främst av entusiaster.Under senare år har utvecklingsarbete visat att BIM kan ge stor nytta.Syftet med den här rapporten är att kartlägga BIM-mognaden hos entreprenörer och underentreprenörer påIsland. Resultaten visar att det saknas medvetenhet och kunskap om BIM bland medelstora och småentreprenörer samt hos underentreprenörer. Bland de större entreprenörerna och hos konsulterna ärkunskapen större än vad som kom fram år 2013 i undersökningen GDDA. Offentliga beställarorganisationerhar nyligen ställt större krav på aktörerna att snabba på implementeringen av BIM
