Design needs to be completed in a multidisciplinary environment. Severe issues about data acquisition and management arise during the design development due to the complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity. BIM is a foundational tool for a team based lean design approach. it can enable the intelligent interrogation of design; provide a quicker and cheaper design production; better co-ordination of documentation; more effective change control; less repetition of processes; a better quality constructed product; and improved communication both for the architectural practice and across the supply chain. Although BIM has been im-plemented by large design and construction practices, it is not widely (if at all) used by SMEs (Small, Medium Enterprises). Besides, implementation of BIM systems through lean design process brings changes and new challenges for stakeholders. This paper discusses BIM implementation with lean thinking in design via the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project with John McCall Architects in Liverpool.
