Abstract

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a unified and comprehensive system for all that associated with the construction project, which includes a set of effective policies, procedures, and computer applications that increase the level of performance in construction project during its life cycle. Through this study investigate about the potential barriers which facing the adoption of BIM was performed. The quantitative approach was adopted by conducting a questionnaire directed to professionals in the field of construction projects in the public and private sectors. Three hundred copies of the forms were distributed to the private companies and governmental institutions and departments.
