Abstract: The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of prevalent issues in the construction industry on construction productivity gains resulting from the usage of BIM. The Singapore Government has aggressively promoted BIM adoption and implementation to improve construction productivity in Singapore via various initiatives. These range from mandating the use of BIM for public objects with gross floor area exceeding 5000 square metres to setting up the BIM Fund under the under the Construction Productivity and Capability Fund for subsidies easing the transition from traditional to BIM processes on construction projects. This resulted in widespread adoption of BIM However, despite the extensive adoption of BIM, the resulting productivity gains have been lower than expected. Hence, this paper delves into this phenomenon in detail, with aid from Dr Teo Ai Lin’s “People”, “Process” and “Technology” Framework to: 1) Investigate the effects of prevalent issues and drivers on BIM-related construction productivity enhancements, 2) Determine the category of issues has the greatest detrimental effect on said productivity gains and 3) Develop a conceptual framework aiding construction firms in the attainment of higher BIM Maturity levels, minimizing the adverse effects on BIM-related construction productivity from said issues. An industry-wide survey was also conducted to collect data, which will be qualitatively and statistically analysed to realize the objectives above. Findings indicate that optimization of BIM construction productivity benefits requires a paradigm shift not only in terms of different hardware and software, but a shift in work culture and processes and the level of BIM knowledge, experience and skillsets.
