Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an emerging technology in the construction industry. It has been applied in architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry since 2000 to increase performance and quality of construction projects. It can also be implemented for the entire of construction project stages which are pre-construction, construction, and post-construction. This paper aims to determine effects of BIM implementation to construction projects. A literature review was carried out to review on BIM implementation in construction projects, application of BIM tools, and BIM benefits. The data came from various sources such as books, journal articles, conference papers and material available on the internet which related to BIM. BIM is necessary to construction projects because it supports and increases accuracy of project design, project cost, and project scheduling. BIM tools such as Revit, Tekla, and Bentley System help in preparing project design, cost estimating, and project scheduling. BIM implementation in construction projects will help to increase projects performance in term of time, cost, and quality.
