Abstract

Previous studies have proved the application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) can lead to greater efficiencies. Slowly adopting new technologies and limited technological innovation are criticised for the construction industry. In this paper, we present research that examines the practices of BIM technologies for the clash detection and coordination among building structure, equipment and pipelines, quantity statistics and construction simulation in a construction project in China. The BIM application significantly promotes the abilities to achieve construction schedule, quality, budget, and scope objectives in the project. The technological capabilities of BIM, the illegal issues of BIM outputs and developing cooperative project management culture are needed in order to promote BIM application in the construction industry.
