Designers are using Building Information Modeling (BIM) to model their buildings and to document their designs. BIM promotes better communication and collaboration through 3D digital tools and allows for automated quantification of work. However, the construction industry still uses traditional methods of estimating from 2D drawings. This study compares BIM based estimates with traditional methods used at the early stages of design using information for the WPI Foisie Innovation Studio. BIM-based estimates take less time with similar results to the traditional cost estimating.
