Abstract


Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology is a powerful technology but is rather new to Hong Kong. The impacts and adoption of BIM in the context of Hong Kong building and construction industry requires an in depth study in order to provide insights for industry to leverage its power. The aim of this research was therefore to identify barriers that affect the adoption of BIM technology in the Hong Kong building and construction industry. A qualitative analysis was conducted on five professionals and experts in Hong Kong building and construction industry to study the effects of the variables of adoption of Building Information Modelling technology. The research results support the research questions and also bring contributions to both academia and the professional environments in the body of knowledge in the BIM field about major factors affecting user adoption of BIM software technology in the Hong Kong building and construction industry.
