|Title||Challenges to the Utilization of BIM in the Palestinian Construction Industry|
This Building Information Modelling (BIM) is considered an innovative method to design, construct and manage a building. BIM can reduce time, cost and enhance project quality. The study reported in this paper was aimed at identifying and evaluation challenges that are facing the application of BIM in the Palestinian construction industry. A total of 270 professionals were surveyed to elicit their views regarding challenges to the utilization of BIM in the construction industry. Factors were ranked according to their relative importance index through SPSS version 22. The results of this study revealed that the main challenges to the utilization of BIM were: lack of awareness of BIM by stakeholders, lack of knowledge about BIM software, lack of awareness of BIM benefits, lack of engineers’ skills in BIM, lack of education and training on the use of BIM, lack of demand from clients, and lack of governmental regulations. It is recommended to conduct awareness program for stockholders regarding MIM benefits. Education and training for engineers at universities is strongly recommended so that they can apply BIM in the practice.
