BIM Implementation Practices of Construction Organizations in the UK AEC Industry – Ojo
Abstract: The aim of this work was to investigate the implementation practices and application of BIM technology by construction organisations through the project phases from inception to operational use in the United Kingdom. The aim and objectives of the study were achieved by the use of qualitative methodology. Semi-structured interview was used for collecting data. Secondary source of data collection included a comprehensive literature review on past and current work on BIM implementation and application across the project lifecycle. To achieve the overall aim fully, a generic Process Map was deemed best to illustrate the BIM implementation practices of construction organisations through the project phases in the UK. The BIM functions or sub-processes at each project phases of the construction process were highlighted from the interviews. Then the process map above linking all the BIM activities in the project was developed. The information outputs at the end of each project stage were illustrated in the Process Map. The information inputs feeding into the BIM functions at the project phases were also examined from the interviews and illustrated in the process map. The information inputs feeding into the BIM functions at the project phases were also examined from the interviews and illustrated in the Process Map.
