Building drawn from a critically analyses of secondary data/information

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