Why Building Owners Love BIM
Ask any building owner what his or her most important issues are and they will tell you, “Energy efficiency and cost savings.” With the tight budgets that building owners and managers are facing, is there any wonder why these two issues are at the forefront? These two issues are particularly important to both public and private institutions that face ongoing financial pressures despite signs that the recession is ending and the economy is recovering. Public institutions are still lagging behind in tax revenues and private institutions will continue to feel the pinch until individuals feel comfortable spending money again. Sources say that when asked about the problems they’re currently facing, over one-third of the facilities managers mention insufficient funding or lack of resources.
