Executive Summary - Project Description
The Macro Adoption Project aims to assist policymakers in developing and improving their policies, strategies and plans to encourage BIM adoption and accelerate the construction industry's digital transformation. We aim to do that by collecting data from 30+ world regions in collaboration with local institutions, industry associations, and community groups.
For each region, we will be running 3 concurrent studies targeted at policymakers (national authorities), educational institutions (universities), and construction organisations (designers, contractors, and facility owners). We will then collate, analyse, and publish the results in each data collection round (2 years) as free reports, open-access dashboards, and decision-support tools. In each additional round, we will compare and update the results, and add new insights. All these deliverables will be publicly available under an open Creative Commons license.
Over the next 2 years (2024 and 2025), we expect to publish 30 regional reports and 1 international report collating all results and lessons learned. We will also release a dynamic data dashboard continuously fed with new data and an interactive decision-support tool with input-driven recommendations. Sponsors have an opportunity to support this project in multiple ways:
- Sponsor the international report and the dynamic dashboard. This opportunity is available to international consultants, software developers, and not-for-profit institutions.
- Sponsor a regional report and a local BIMe Initiative event. This opportunity is available to local companies, associations and multinational companies operating in that region.
- Support the BIMe Initiative as a whole across all projects and streams.
- Position the sponsor’s brand on the project’s regional or international reports.
- Include the sponsor’s brand in all BIMe Initiative events across all projects.
- Early access to the draft report they sponsor.
- Access to the project team through sponsor-only meetings.
- Mentions on social media during project-related announcements.
- Presentation slot in the Excellence Seminar (every 2 years).

Sponsors selecting a Silver Package will have their branding added to the report covering the selected study (e.g., Policy Environment) from a single region (e.g., Brazil). Their branding will also be included in the region’s overall report covering the 3 studies and will be acknowledged in the International Report covering all studies from all regions. They will also have priority to retake the sponsorship spot for the selected study in the next round.
Sponsors selecting the Gold Package will have their branding added to the report covering the three studies (Policy Environment, Education Environment and Organizational Adoption) from a single region. Their branding will also be exclusively included in the region’s overall report and will be acknowledged as the Region’s Sponsor in the International Report and Dashboard covering all studies from all regions. They will also have priority to retake the same sponsorship spot for the selected region in the next round.
Sponsors selecting the Platinum Package package will have their branding added to the international report covering all studies (Policy Environment, Education Environment and Organizational Adoption) from all regions covered by the project. They will also have priority to retake the same sponsorship spot for the next round.
