Construction industry is a project-based endeavour in which its success heavily rests upon the intertwined collaborative gumptions rendered by each of the project team members throughout the project lifecycle. Optimisation of productivity have long been recognised as one of the toughest challenges faced in construction –frequently postulated by many as one of the most inefficient industries worldwide. Consequently, Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been introduced to ameliorate this shortfall, riding on its ability to better integrate the entire project team via a common platform, utilising Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as well as Internet of Things (IoT), or more specifically, through the ‘Cloud’ as is commonly coined. Nevertheless, its ability has yet to be fully utilised owing to the lack of awareness among construction stakeholders with regards to the array of benefits offered by this Cloud-based technology. In view of this, the authors aim to unmask the capabilities of Cloud-based BIM in enhancing project integration. To this end, a model has been conceptualised by reviewing extant literatures, with the concept of 4C’s (Communication, Coordination, Cooperation, Collaboration) adopted as its underlying theory. This conceptual model can be expected to impact the digitisation of project management, thereby optimising productivity and enhancing projects’ overall efficiency. This study also lays the groundwork for the better understanding and the future development of Cloud-based BIM and team integration in managing construction projects, both locally and internationally.
