The construction industry has been facing a paradigm shift to (i) increase; productivity, efficiency, infrastructure value, quality and sustainability, (ii) reduce; lifecycle costs, lead times and duplications, via effective collaboration and communication of stakeholders in construction projects. Construction Lifecycle Management with BIM seeks to integrate processes throughout the entire lifecycle. The focus is to create and reuse consistent digital information by the stakeholders throughout the lifecycle. However, implementation and use of BIM systems requires dramatic changes in current business practices, bringing new challenges for stakeholders, e.g., the emerging knowledge and skill gap. This chapter reviews and discusses implications of the BIM technology within the business processes of the construction industry. Moreover, based on the lessons learnt, it will provide a guide to tackle the challenges, e.g., process re-engineering and to facilitate successful transition towards utilizing BIM systems in construction projects
