Abstract

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been established as a means of improving efficiency and effectiveness in the construction project through collaboration and information exchange throughout the life cycle of the built facilities. With early adoption of BIM by the countries such as USA, Singapore and UK, it is becoming a common practice. Standards and codes of practices have been developed and best practice examples are readily available. Software developers are also working with the industry to provide interoperability amongst the specialist software solutions and to enable the collaboration amongst the stakeholders. Through the literature review of BIM adoption in the countries like UK and USA, this paper highlights the benefits, project management approach using BIM and the steps that should be followed to adopt and implement BIM to improve efficiencies in the Nepalese construction industry.
