Abstract

With the rapid rise in AECO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Operation & Maintenance) industry, there was a need to reinvent the conventional construction practice and project delivery system. The digitization of data resulted in the formation of Building Information and Modelling (BIM) which revolutionized the AEC industry. BIM offers the integrated ability of properties, materials, life-cycle and other data with added facilities of interoperability, facility management, construction management, risk management and leadership in energy and environmental design. Since 2000 BIM is considered to be a major breakthrough in the construction industries which not only delivers the projects but also tackles the operation and maintenance of the delivered project. BIM provides the 7D environment i.e. (x.y, z) axis, time, cost, sustainability and facility management, further research is being going on to achieve nD environment.This research aims at the growth drivers and the challenges faced for adoption of BIM in Indian construction projects through questionnaire survey for different user and discuss the risk, challenges,reason and interest in adoption of BIM for Indian Construction Industry.The discoveries and proposals of this research could be utilized by organizations to help survey their current BIM appropriation and distinguish if and how BIM ought to be embraced.
