Abstract: Building Information Modeling (BIM) is currently being used by the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry in Malaysia. It has been introduced by the Director of Public Works Department (PWD) in 2007 to enhance performances and quality in planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance stage. The main aim of this research is to study the implementation of BIM in Malaysian construction industry. A literature review was done to explore previous BIM studies on definitions of BIM, necessity of BIM implementation, concept and application of BIM, BIM tools, differences between traditional and BIM method, benefits of BIM, challenges in implementing BIM as well as ways to improve BIM implementation. The data came from various sources such as books, journal, articles and material available on the internet which related to BIM. Furthermore, questionnaire survey had been carried out where 100 sets of questionnaire were sent out to the developer, consultant, contractor, architectural and engineering companies as well as government sector in Malaysia and 55 sets completed forms received back were analyzed. Findings of the study revealed that the rate of BIM implementation in construction industry is very low. Major benefits of BIM are clash detection, accurate quantity take off as well as efficient project delivery process. However, major challenges to low level of BIM implementation are high cost of implementation, lack of training and lack of expert. Provide training program, include BIM course in higher education teaching syllabus and acquirement of new skills by staffs are very effective ways in enhancing the implementation of BIM.
Keywords: Building Information Modeling (BIM), Strategic Planning, Cost of implementation, and benefits of BIM
