Impact of BIM Technology on the Construction Project Management Process

9 pagesPublished: May 26, 2024


The complex process of Construction Project Management (CPM) is overwhelming because it
involves many participants and multiple disciplines requiring vast information processing. In this
context, Construction Project Managers benefit from all tools or models available to improve this
process. Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology is one of the models gaining awareness
in the construction industry. Its collaborative essence is one of the most appreciated benefits
because it facilitates communication and collaboration between the project stakeholders. This study
investigated how BIM technology enhances the CPM process to achieve project objectives more
efficiently. The research began with a review of existing literature to identify the main
characteristics of BIM technology, as well as the key factors that determine an efficient and
effective CPM process. The researcher selected a quantitative survey methodology. An electronic
questionnaire gathered data about CPM professionals’ knowledge and experience regarding using
BIM technology on projects. The analysis results indicated a positive relationship between BIM
and CPM process. The research findings suggested that construction companies and professionals
should consider adopting or expanding the use of BIM technology.
