Abstract

Although Building Information Modeling (BIM) can enhance efficiency of sustainable building projects, its adoption is still plagued with barriers. In order to incorporate BIM more efficiently, it is important to consider and mitigate these barriers. The aim of this study is to explore and develop strategies to alleviate barriers in developing countries, such as Malaysia, to broaden implementation of BIM with the aid of quantitative and qualitative approaches. To achieve this aim, a comprehensive literature review was carried out to identify the barriers, and a questionnaire survey was conducted with construction projects� stakeholders. The ranking analysis results revealed the top five critical barriers to be �unavailability of standards and guidelines�, �lack of BIM training�, �lack of expertise�, �high cost�, and �lack of research and BIM implementation�. Comparative study findings showed that �lack of research and BIM implementation� is the least important barrier in other countries like China, United Kingdom, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Furthermore, qualitative analysis revealed the strategies to mitigate the BIM implementation barriers to enhance sustainable goals. The final outcome of this study is the establishment of a framework incorporated with BIM implementation barriers and strategies namely, the �BIM-based research framework�, which can assist project managers and policymakers towards effective sustainable construction. © 2021 by the authors.
