Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a set of digital tools for managing the efficiency of construction projects. In Malaysia, the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industries have used BIM. In 2007, the Director of the Public Works Department (PWD) proposed using BIM in Malaysia. The purpose of this article is to look into the use of BIM in the Malaysian construction industry. Previous BIM research on definitions and history of BIM, construction challenges, application of BIM and BIM tools in construction projects, and BIM benefits were investigated through a literature study. The Malaysian government encourages construction companies to adopt BIM in their projects since it can help them avoid issues like delays, design clashes amongst professionals, and construction cost overruns. The government has recommended Autodesk technologies as a BIM tool platform. Revit Architecture, Revit Structural, Revit MEP, Navisworks, and Cost-X are some of the other tools available. The value of BIM use in construction projects must be understood by all construction stakeholders. This is because, similar to what is done in some other countries, BIM might be one of the requirements for a company to qualify for government and commercial projects. Furthermore, BIM aids in the efficiency and effectiveness of construction projects. It can also be used to promote collaboration and communication among construction stakeholders. Because of the government's efforts to promote BIM, the use of BIM technology in the Malaysian construction industry is likely to become more common.
