Abstract:

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a three-dimensional (3-D) modelling technology that allows the multi-disciplinary building professionals to explore the building project digitally through an integrated process. It enables better control of project management and execution from planning to design, construction and operations.
Internationally, BIM has been identified as one of the key technologies that will transform the construction industry. In Singapore, BIM has been described as a game changing technology that will improve the construction productivity as well as the level of integration and collaboration across the various disciplines in the construction value chain. To embrace the technology, Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has launched the BIM Roadmap incorporating with Centre for Construction IT, BIM Steering Committee, BIM Manager Forums in 2010 with the aim to achieve 80% of the construction industry use BIM by 2015, which is part of the government’s plan to improve the construction industry’s productivity by up to 25% over the next decade.
In December 2015 and January 2016, a research team from the National University of Singapore surveyed a total of 104 companies in the construction industry, including developers, consultants and contractors to review the development of BIM in Singapore. The survey was designed to collect empirical data to examine the level of BIM adoption in these companies. Preliminary survey findings will be presented at the seminar, in which a dialogue will be created with participants to discuss the way forward in BIM development in Singapore.
