Abstract: Building Information Modelling (BIM) is touted as the way forward for construction industry. With its collaborative functions, it provides a solid step towards improving productivity and efficiency growth for an often stagnant construction industry. While the construction industry is more prevalent as compared to other industries, it falters behind in field of innovation and flexibility in its processes. BIM offers the construction industry to push ahead, especially through socio-technical process within its organizational process. Governments and innovative industry leaders in construction such as the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), have pushed forward with BIM since its inception in 2003, incorporating BIM into their work processes and finding new innovative ways to improve collaboration and communication between stakeholders within the project. In Singapore, with productivity in construction industry faltering, utilization of BIM and its capabilities are important. While BIM has achieved more awareness and adoption in the construction industry, the degree of its implementation within projects is not as encouraging. BIM involves the professionals as much as the technology, and as BIM implementation progresses, the construction industry climate changes and new barriers within the organizational management in BIM projects may become more significant. Top down approach of BIM implementation is important however, a bottom up perspective of BIM has not been as readily available. This paper seeks to identify the state of BIM implementation within the construction industry in Singapore from the perspective of the professionals that have been using BIM thus far. The insights provided will be compared with international cases of BIM projects and the management within these projects, to identify common trends that occur during BIM implementation among professionals. The paper would provide recommendations to remedy these barriers to facilitate the next stage of deeper BIM implementation in Singapore.
