Awad S. Hanna, Michael Yeutter, and Diane G. Aoun discuss state of practice of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in the electrical construction industry. The discussers not only complement their scholarly works, but also provide a needed contextual backdrop that will enable an ameliorated understanding of electrical systems in the construction industry. They note that the authors' study did not present an operational definition of BIM, and this renders their results as superficial and lacking context. It also means that the work eschews providing directions for future research in this fertile area.
