summary The research project „BIM – Potentials and Barriers“ aims to analyse the existing practice concerning BIM and the barriers for the implementation of this approach in Germany. Accompanied by an ‚advisory board’ with nameable representatives from practice, the public authorities and AEC associations, a set of hypotheses has been elaborated that could be evaluated by a detailed survey. Based on the detection of relevant stakeholders, the survey fi rst tries to disclose the real situation of how BIM is currently used in practice. Furthermore the potentials of the application of BIM in the different processes and target groups are determined as well as the barriers and constraints. Thereby the enhancement of the considered thematic areas is an important solution approach of the project: besides technological aspects, the analysis is also focusing on contracting, norms and processes as well as education, knowledge and role perception.
