Activation trigger for organisational bim learning: Views from Malaysian construction stakeholders

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is one of the current initiatives by the construction industry to escalate the performance and productivity in managing construction projects. Despite various initiatives that have been taken to encourage construction organisation to adopt BIM in Malaysia, the response remains unfavourable. As part of a wider study to understand the concept of Absorptive Capacity (AC), this study aims to explore the critical activation triggers for construction organisations in Malaysia towards BIM learning. Data were gathered and analysed quantitatively and qualitatively through a questionnaire survey and semi-structured interviews research method involving a wide range of construction organisations. The findings revealed that the top five activation triggers were; initiatives by construction constitutional bodies; BIM standard manual and guidelines; appointment of well experienced BIM manager; established BIM monitoring unit and opportunity for collaboration and susceptible to new environments using BIM. The study gives an initial insight on what it takes to drive Malaysian construction organisations towards BIM implementation. Future research is recommended to further explore the other elements of AC in developing a framework for BIM learning among local organisations.
