Abstract

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is increasingly being implemented in the construction industry to produce data-rich models of buildings and structures. BIM was introduced to the Malaysian construction industry by the Public Works Department (PWD) in 2007. Since then, the Malaysian government has taken initiatives to promote BIM in construction projects. This paper aims to explore those initiatives in promoting and encouraging construction players to use BIM. A semi-structured interview was conducted with the Head of BIM Unit Projects, PWD, to explore BIM initiatives made by PWD. It revealed several initiatives have been carried out by PWD, which could increase the use of BIM in the construction projects
