Integrated practice in construction industry is identified as one of the solution that could be used to minimise the problems associated with fragmentation in construction. Many solutions are identified to support integrated practice and such of them are Integrated Project Delivery, Integrated Design Solution and nD Modelling. The aforementioned solutions, however, have the similarity where they are all using Building Information Modelling as a part of the process. Through a literature review, this paper is highlighted the definition and concept of Building Information Modelling. Several benefits of implementing Building Information Modelling is also discussed which covers the visualization and collaboration benefit, synchronization of design and construction planning, conflict detection and cost reduction. This paper concluded the Building Information Modelling could provide an ideal platform for integrated practice since it is capable of integrating and linking the project information to the data level.
