Abstract

The major focus of this paper is to identify the advantages, challenges and usability of BIM during the project life cycle. Understanding the actual advantages of BIM is an essential driver for effective adaptation while both academic research and case studies particularly within construction and post construction stages failed to analyse and quantify BIM benefits. It was also found there is lack of investigation on inter-organisational challenges prior to adopt BIM and majority of undertaken research have focused merely on technical obstacles. This study did a literature review and suggests there should be universal guidelines to quantify benefits gained not only during design and construction phase, but also in post construction phase. This can greatly contribute to increase the use of BIM in both public and private projects. In addition, the findings indicate there are more three challenges other than technical obstacles that need consideration when implementing BIM, namely process related obstacles, social context obstacles and associated costs.
