A principal component analysis of Organisational BIM Implementation
Keywords:BIM, implementation, organisational benefits, construction industry
BIM implementation by organisations is a bit challenging for many organisations. It has become an essential yardstick for project execution in the construction industry. However, many organisations struggle to achieve its implementation as they are still in the chaotic stage due to the BIM introduction. However, the knowledge of the inherent value and usefulness resulting from BIM implementation can help them transform from the status quo to a new status quo. The study adopted purposive sampling through a quantitative approach to identify the merits of organisational BIM adoption. Data was collected using a structured questionnaire from thirty BIM aligned construction organisations. The study identified the critical BIM benefits to construction organisations. In addition, the structure among the factors was identified through principal cluster analysis and three clusters were identified; these are achieving competitive advantage through BIM adoption, effective organisational process and enhanced work output and achieving project outcome. The results of this study provide insight, and it is instructive to stakeholders in the construction industry to aid BIM diffusion.
