Keywords:BIM, Contractors, 3D Modeling, Clash Detection, Sequencing and Scheduling.
The construction industry has dramatically improved its use of technology during the previous three decades. The most recent and enticing in the said developments is the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM). This study assesses the acceptance level of BIM for the respondents who classify as contractors that were based in District III in Nueva Ecija alongside with its strengths, weaknesses and barriers. The aims of the study are to give awareness for users and potential users who are directly involved in the construction industry, of the benefits of BIM in achieving a better construction project. The research is based on web-based closed ended survey online questionnaire and hand to hand distribution of survey questionnaire. The data are analyzed through frequency count, percentage and weighted mean. The results showed that the overall acceptance for BIM in construction industry in District III in Nueva Ecija is “Acceptable”. Furthermore, BIM facilitates better coordination and clash detection and also improving sequencing or scheduling while the primary purpose of contractors for using this was for 3D Modeling. However, the high cost of BIM software and, lack and high cost of training schools for BIM are the top reasons why the implementation of BIM is avoided in the construction industry in District III in Nueva Ecija. The study concludes that most of the contractors are willing to try BIM but there are many key factors that obstruct the implementation of BIM.
