NPCA members have been invited to join British Precast Federation and National Precast Concrete Association of Australia counterparts in a 10-minute survey on Building Information Modeling use, the results aimed at a report, “Critical Success Factors of BIM implementation in Precast Concrete Companies.”

Survey developers define BIM as any technology from simple 3D modeling to collaborative modeling and integrated project delivery. Open to BIM users and non-users, and multiple employees per plant, the survey is being conducted here through September 20.

The associations seek to identify difficulties precast concrete producers encounter with BIM software deployment; techniques and processes to overcome them; and, a model with which they can more confidently plan and execute their own program implementation.
