Abstract

The implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in a construction project is gaining momentum acrossthe globeparticularlyin developing countries. BIM implementation has been exceptionallyslow in theconstruction industry in comparison to industries such as manufacturingand engineering. The construction industryin Sarawak is beginningto change as building clients and authoritiesmandatedthe use of BIM consistentwith the CIDBtransformationroadmap and Industrial Revolution 4.0.This paper is a part of a research projectthat examines the strategies associated with the implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in Sarawak construction industry. BIM allows projects to be built virtually before they are constructed physically whilst removinginefficiencies and ability conflictsthat may arise all through theconstruction process. Whilst BIM is presentlyreceiving high volumes of attention around the world, it appears that well-knownunderstanding of it’s far still tremendouslylow. Thus, it requires a study to determine what are the strategies that could enhance the BIM implementation in the Sarawak construction industry. A questionnaire survey was conducted among 300 respondents from diverseconstruction stakeholders in Sarawak and133 questionnaire surveys were returnedfor analysis. The collected data were analysed for descriptive, mean and factor analysisusing IBM SPSS version 25 software. It was found that “subsidizing the price for BIM software” isthe top-ranked strategywith a mean score of 8.1805. Subsequently, the resultsfor factor analysis revealed that all factors for BIM implementation strategies were above 0.854. The key finding was the identification of the importance ofgovernment support to ensure successful BIM implementation in the Sarawak construction industry. Other important strategies identified includea strategic approach model to assist construction players to implement BIM and cooperation among BIM practitioner, academia and researcher to educate and expose BIM to students in institutions.
