Abstract

The construction area in Brazil have different challenges to become more productive, efficient and sustainability. The objective is analyze the profile of projects offices at Brazil´s southeast region to determine the design tools used for project development and their characteristics in civil construction area. The strategy was a technical review about this issue in periodic papers and a survey, applied online, for project experts. The results shows that CAD – Computer Aided Design – tools still have more presence and BIM – Building Information Modeling – software is gaining space inside offices, but still have problems that need be resolved. Besides, inside the context, BIM tools have qualities aligned with actual demands that put it in evidence to resolve historical problems at civil construction context.
