Enhancing BIM Diffusion through Pilot Projects in Vietnam
Keywords:BIM, implementation, diffusion, Vietnam, pilot project
Significant BIM uptake barriers in Vietnam include the lack of awareness and knowledge on BIM, high investment costs, and shortage of regulations, standards or guidance related to the AEC industry. This research focuses on enhancing BIM diffusion through eight selected projects with diversity in the type, scale (grade), location and funding sources - representing the myriad of construction project classifications in Vietnam. Additional reporting and interview sessions were held with BIM professionals involved in the projects, with the notion of immersing into professional experience during the project. These experiences were extracted to provide implementation experience and lessons learnt for future projects in Vietnam. This research highlighted the key issues around BIM skills and competencies, BIM investment and BIM regulations, standards and guidance. The research findings will support stakeholders to adopt the solutions to meet BIM adoption challenges to enhance the effectiveness of BIM implementation in future construction projects.
