Abstract: In Singapore, the public sector takes the lead in macro BIM diffusion. Despite the reported 65% adoption rate in 2013, BIM is primarily used for design purposes, by the consultants, to meet the mandatory e-submission requirement for regulatory approvals. Thus, developers, being at the top of the construction value chain, have the greatest influence on the other project stakeholders and should take the lead. However, there exists a lack of developers’ demand for BIM as they do not see the value in doing so. In line with Singapore’s Smart Nation Vision, the author proposed that the developed BIM model of the residential buildings/ units at the end of a project can be used as a platform by the business, government or research agencies to create and offer contemporary products and services (p&s) that simplify and enhance daily life of the residents like never before. In return, developers can establish new revenue streams by seeking reimbursement for provision of the digital models. Ultimately, this will incentivize the developers to ensure the development of the BIM models beyond the design phase. Surveys were done to examine resident’s demand for the potential p&s that can be provided. Following which, interviews were conducted with both public and private developers, and a main contractor to seek their views on the feasibility of the proposed user driven BIM. A case study on the mobile industry is also presented. Alas, roles and responsibilities of the different stakeholders in leading, enabling and supporting user driven BIM diffusion are delineated. The combination of the proposed roadmap as well as top down government mandate will provide a comprehensive approach to push for industry-wide BIM adoption
