Take the Ninth Annual BIM MEP Survey

We're doing our BIM survey again. Do us a favor and take it if you haven't already. Our survey software says the average person finishes the survey in 5 minutes. It would really help us out if you could take those few minutes to answer the survey. Thanks!

(Editor's Note: The survey has ended.)

You can read the results of last year’s survey here.
