What is the one key issue holding our industry back?

It may be hard to hit the nail on the head of that question considering the Building Information Modelling industry has a few rather unfortunate flaws, but what do BIM professionals believe is the largest factor halting us from achieving each and every benefit of BIM possible?

We asked delegates and speakers that very question at both Digital Construction Week 2015 and RTC Europe 2015 in London, UK and Budapest, Hungary respectively. Too many standards? A lack of collaboration? Low profit margins? Fear of the unknown? Check out what some of the world’s most knowledgeable and influential names had to say when we let them ponder that thought.
