Building Information Modelling (BIM) is one of the newer technologies introduced to the construction related players as the principal communicating tools in the construction project. BIM has been widely used in many countries. In Malaysia, the idea to implement BIM was introduced by the Director of Public Works Department (PWD) in 2007. BIM has already begun changing how designers collaborate with consultants and builders, and it also has the capability to guide the industry towards the production of buildings meeting sustainable development goals and operation of a new capital facility or a recapitalized (modernized) facility. The Government has started to encourage Malaysian construction related players to shift from current practices to BIM implementation. BIM implementation in construction industry without a doubt had provided several advantages towards the construction parties around the world. Its effectiveness has been proven by several parties across the globe. However, it is still uncertain in which aspect during construction projects does BIM can be viewed as the most effective. This study aims to identify the most crucial aspect during construction project where BIM can be said as being the most effective. These information is crucial to construction players in order to attract them towards BIM implementation in Malaysia. To achieve the aim of the study, intensive review literature review and interview were conducted beside deployed questionnaires to the respondents. RII were used to analyse the data. From the study, we found that BIM was still not yet widely used in Malaysia according to the data received from conducted questionnaire and literature reviews. Other than that, from the survey data also, we can concluded that the factor which deemed as the most important among the factors chosen was the BIM capability to do clash checking for the whole finalized design model. The survey data also indicated that the aspect where BIM can be said as being the most effective was during design assistance and constructability. In conclusion, this study managed to achieve the proposed objective. The outcome from this study does not stray far away from the expected outcome which is BIM implementation in Malaysia is still low and it is the most effective during aspect of design assistance and constructability. Hopefully, all the information provided inside this thesis can provide encouragement towards construction players to use BIM in their future projects.
