Several researchers have suggested the use of BIM in projects concerning historic buildings and sites. Aspects like facility management, visualisation of historic development, monitoring changes over time and collecting qualitative assets (historic photographs, etc.) are highlighted. As more and more of the software in the AEC-industry are compatible with BIM-formats, a Historic Building Information Model, HBIM, can also be used to assess performance, environmental aspects and cost. This research aims to survey the acceptance of HBIM technology amongst craftsmen working with heritage buildings. Through interviews and testing of HBIM on-site during the rebuilding phase of a project concerning moving a historic building, the carpenter’s perception is assessed. The data from the interviews were analysed based on the Technology Acceptance Model. The results reveal that the carpenters find the technology to be useful and easy to use. However, this depends on careful preparation by the site engineer.
