Abstract: Due to the evident benefits of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in the construction industry, the usage of BIM has been accelerating globally. Singapore is one of the many countries which encourage BIM adoption through mandatory regulation by the authority. However, the adoption of BIM does not reflect on the degree of BIM maturity in individual organisations. Furthermore, standardised assessment tools are not put in place for organisations in Singapore to determine their BIM maturity. The aim of this research is to investigate whether the local construction organisations understand the importance of determining their BIM maturity and in turn, maximise the potential of BIM. Additionally, the factors affecting the organisation’s BIM maturity are explored through the existing tools used overseas as well as the BIM guidelines established in Singapore. A survey is conducted to fulfil the research objectives and to validate the hypotheses by studying the sentiments of 40 participants on the behalf of their organisations about BIM maturity assessment. Degrees of BIM usages, as well as five process-driven areas (18 variables) are statistically proven to be significant factors in determining the organisation’s BIM maturity in the Singapore construction industry. A proposed tool is developed based on the significant factors to aid organisations in determining and benchmarking their BIM usages and processes against a standardised assessment. This will enhance consistent BIM improvements to bring BIM adoption in the Singapore construction industry to greater heights.
