Building information modelling (BIM) continually presents transformation opportunities and strengthening collaboration within the construction industry. People, process and technology are largely discussed factors affecting BIM adoption across the global construction industry. The unsettling precedence envisaged by construction professionals with the onset of BIM in Malaysia has garnered more research focus on this soft issues to technology adoption. Therefore, this paper focuses on the relationship between people, process and technology perception of construction professionals. The overall causal relationship is examined towards effects on BIM adoption in addition to the degree of influence. Quantitative data was derived through a survey of 352 construction professionals (Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Engineers and Contractors) which was further anlysed using SPSS and Amos v20. The results revealed a high correlation between people, process and technology (>0.50) while process significantly affected BIM adoption (0.35). Overall, the model explored validated the conceptual framework on the impact of BIM perception of construction industry professionals in Malaysia on the adoption rate of BIM. The results denote grey areas for construction industry stakeholders to direct more efforts towards improving knowledge on BIM technology.
