MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe implementation and usage of Building Information Modelling (BIM) on construction projects affects procurement and the supply chain activities. BIM process is changing the traditional modus operandi of the construction industry where many projects have failed to achieve its objectives due to ineffective stakeholder management. An on-going PhD study explores how to mitigate delays and conflicts between stakeholders on BIM implemented projects in the UK. This paper is based on critical literature review and primary data collection through semi-structured interviews. Findings from the literature review show that BIM publication such as PAS 1192-2:2013, Employers Information Requirements (EIR) and BIM Execution Plan (BEP) sets out clear requirements for the coordination and collaboration process for the BIM model production. This provides a huge potential to enhance and facilitate communication among stakeholders. This helps in mitigating conflicts among stakeholders. The findings from the interviewees shows that BIM can help project teams to proactively satisfy stakeholders by engaging them early on in the construction process and seek solutions to avoid or minimise delays and conflicts. The paper concludes that it has culture, trust, people, technology, communication and structures are at its core for managing stakeholders within BIM projects.
