I think so. We have used it on several larger projects and it has definitely proven its value, for NEW CONSTRUCTION. We do a lot of remodels and renovations, and I don't think most organizations will commit to BIM their existing facilities - as-built drawings are barely maintained in most cases.
They will definitely gain traction but their integration with other project management applications (Primavera, MSP, etc.) has still got a long way to go. As it is there is currently a gaping chasm between them. It is also only fair to say that BIM has been in existence for a long, long time though not always as a software application. Organizations have been doing it by manually updating drawings or through AutoCad and such. The integration of BIM with Planning is the next step I think.
