Abstract: Technological innovation has been continuously changing the construction industry. The computer-aided design (CAD) replaced hand drawings few decades ago and now the growing movement of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is offering a new trend for construction industry. The benefits of BIM have been demonstrated in countries like Finland, Korea and the US however the adoption rate of BIM in Singapore is still at the early stage. This study is initiated to assess the capability of BIM in monitoring the construction safety in Singapore content. Through this study, it will help the industry have a better understanding of BIM. In addition, the limitation of BIM for project safety and the barrier of implementation will also be studied. A hypothetical case study was designed based on the findings of literature reviews and conceptual plans were developed to demonstrate how BIM could help to enhance project safety. Interviews were conducted with BIM professionals to validate the feasibility of conceptual plans. Data collected were analyzed using qualitative approach and recommendations were made to authorities and software engineers.
