Building Information Modelling application: focus-group discussion

Hafez Salleh, Phui Fung Wong

Abstract

Although the potential of building information modelling to achieve sustainability has been widely acknowledged by the scientific community, the level of implementation is nevertheless quite low. Most of the existing research focuses on the study of the barriers and strategies of BIM application through a quantitative approach. This study ascertains critical barriers and appropriate strategies for the application of BIM through qualitative approach via focus group discussions. The findings reveal that the cost of implementation is not indicated as a critical barrier, and that the lack of expertise, training, and awareness, is more critical in that respect.
