Abstract: With the low productivity rates suffered by the Singapore construction industry over the span of many years, it is vital to establish and introduce effective measures to help improve the productivity rate of the industry. BIM has been identified as a tool that could help boost the low productivity rate when it is implemented in the firms’ work processes. Despite this, there are firms in the construction industry in Singapore that have not adopted BIM in their work processes. Therefore, this research study has set out to explore the potential of BIM adoption on project productivity, studying the use of BIM and its relation to project productivity, ascertaining the factors that are hindering firms from adopting BIM and to implement strategies in tackling these challenges and help boost the BIM adoption rate. The two research hypotheses, if BIM plays a part in improving the productivity in a construction project and if the top factor that hinders BIM implementation in the Singapore construction industry is the lack of client demand, were tested based on the use of stratified sampling method for data collection in the form of two sets of different survey questionnaires which are later validated through conducting interviews. The data collected were then analysed with the use of the mean score technique, Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test, Pearson Correlation Test and a Multiple Linear Regression Analysis. The findings showed that the use of BIM does help in improving project productivity and that the lack of client demand is not a top factor in the Singapore construction industry hindering the implementation of BIM. A few strategies have been set out by this study to attempt and tackle the barriers in implementing BIM. In conclusion, BIM serves as an excellent tool that could improve productivity in a construction project but some proper strategies have to be set in place to convince firms to implement BIM in their work processes.
