Abstract

This research is concerned with the challenges for Building Information Modelling (BIM) adoption from the perspective of clients/owners in the Malaysian construction industry. A survey was administered using 33-item questionnaire specifically developed for the purpose of examining the challenges for BIM adoption in Malaysian. Data were analysed using WINSTEPS version 3.69.1.16 software to perform Rasch analysis. The findings of this research showed that although there was an indication that organisations in Malaysia were becoming more aware and interested in adopting BIM, these organisations were being hindered by lack of references and direction for BIM in the construction industry. The main contribution of this paper is to provide a baseline to understand the reason for slow BIM adoption in Malaysia and makes recommendations for future studies on how to mitigate these challenges for BIM adoption.
