BuildingInformation Modelling (BIM) is widely seen as a catalyst for innovation andproductivity in the construction industry.
BIM can facilitate more sustainableprocess in construction that in turn may contribute to sustainable livingespecially in developing nations, being the millennium goal of the UnitedNation. Focusing on the United Kingdom and the developed countries around the world,where BIM is increasingly being adopted, it can be asserted that BIM continuesto provide several benefits through facilitating better communication,innovation and efficiency, including aspects such as; sustainability and itsimpact on technological environment. Despite the positives ascribed to theimplementation of BIM in the construction industry, there are key issues thatare deemed concerning and therefore, require positive measures to ensureeffectiveness in addressing the short-comings. Accordingly, this paperhighlights some of the successes and shortcomings of existing research on BIMimplementation in UK, and evidences through the rationale behind its use andwhy it’s implementation should become generally acceptable.
Furthermore,recommendations and conclusions on this research paper are drawn from acritically analyses of secondary data/information highlighting the use of BIMin construction and when it wasn’t used.
