The demand pull for a more effective construction process within architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry continuous to transform design techniques from 2D, 3D and building information modelling (BIM). Leverage on IT pivotal for construction industry development has been earmarked by the Malaysian construction industry master plan (CIMP). BIM uptake by stakeholders in Malaysia construction industry is on a gradual increase. BIM generates and manage building data during its life cycle via threedimensional, real-time, dynamic building modelling. The model is dependent on collaborative contribution by project teams input at various stages. However, challenges such as people, process and technology impede an effective penetration rate in Malaysia. This paper presents a continuation of the theoretical framework developed, to further investigate the relationship for BIM penetration from perspectives of people, process and technology to strategic IT in construction and collaborative construction. The theorised hypotheses argue that strategic IT planning will invariably aid BIM penetration in the industry. The hypothesis will undergo structural equation modelling (SEM) to analyse the desired statistical power, test for close versus exact fit and complexity of the model. The findings will delineate the variables with predominant impact on BIM penetration and serves as a guide to policy making on BIM implementation in Malaysia.
