Abstract

Building Information Modelling (BIM) provides significant benefits to construction players. However, BIM in construction projects seem not fully been implemented. This is due to lack effective strategy of implementing BIM in project design stage. Added to the matters, most of the construction players fail to get benefits using BIM because they are facing difficulty to implement BIM. This research aims to assist construction players to implement BIM in construction project design stage. Literature review was carried out to discover BIM implementation in construction project design stage and examples of models in construction field, which the research model has similar purposes with the models. Semi-structured interviews have been done with design team, which currently involved and have been involved in projects using BIM for residential and commercial projects in Malaysia. All data obtained from the interviews were analysed using content analysis technique. The findings from the interviews revealed that, construction players need an assistance in a form of model to implement BIM in construction project design stage. Therefore, both data from literature review and the interviews were used to develop a model, which has been named as ‘BIM Implementation Model for design team’. The model is one of the ways to assist design team to implement BIM in construction project design stage. Apart from that, the model would assist design team a place to start and follow with several elements in each level of the model. Thus, the model could increase BIM implementation in project design stage.
