Revelation Research, a UK-based business intelligence firm, conducted the CAD user experience survey among nearly 1000 architect practitioners. 

BIM and CAD in UK Architecture

The survey showed that over 60 percent of architects in the UK still use a variety of 2D CAD solutions as their primary design software. ArchiCAD, the preferred software of 22 percent of respondents, emerged as the clear market leading BIM solution in the UK. It lead all other rivals in overall user satisfaction. 

“We are every proud that the survey highlights ArchiCAD’s pedigree as a mature and carefully crafted software aimed at meeting the many design needs of architects.” said Miklos Szovenyi-Lux, Vice President, Product Management at Graphisoft. “The survey also indicates that 83 percent of ArchiCAD users would recommend the product to fellow architects, which is a strong endorsement of our continuous efforts to focus on our customer’s needs.”
