Abstract

In recent decades, increased complexity of construction projects combined with improvements in computer technology have compelled the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry to integrate Building Information Modeling (BIM) into its operations. Growing client demands, contractual obligations, new government regulations and an expanded awareness on cost savings and improved efficiency provided by BIM have further stimulated the dissemination of BIM technologies in construction. However, the transformation of the industry has not been exempted from problems, many of them stemming from incongruence with a multidisciplinary working environment, collaboration issues and the challenges in the adoption and utilization of a new technology. Although there seems to be consensus among researchers and industry professionals that the proliferation of BIM in the sector would bring numerous advantages and efficiency, it is not yet clear which factors contribute to a smooth transition in the sector. Using a systematic literature review, the present research aims to reveal the challenges faced by AEC industry in the adoption and implementation of BIM technologies. In this concept, a differentiation is made between the developing and the developed countries in terms of favourable conditions/weaknesses for BIM adoption and potential problems and their solutions are discussed.

Keywords: Building Information Modeling, meta-analysis, diffusion, adoption, construction
