title Challenges to the Adoption of BIM in the Chinese AEC Industries - An Extended BIM Adoption Model
source P. Janssen, P. Loh, A. Raonic, M. A. Schnabel (eds.), Protocols, Flows, and Glitches - Proceedings of the 22nd CAADRIA Conference, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, Suzhou, China, 5-8 April 2017, pp. 179-187
summary Despite strong encouragement by government guidelines and promoting efforts by the software industry, BIM is adopted at relatively slow speeds in construction industries across the world. The study presented in this paper examines the challenges to BIM adoption faced in particular in the Chinese construction industry across architecture, engineering and construction. We review recent literature addressing BIM adoption, develop a critique of common approaches to BIM adoption, and then propose our own, extended model to describe and assess BIM adoption processes. To demonstrate the model's suitability to evaluate temporal and collaborative dimensions during BIM adoption processes, we present results from a detailed survey we conducted among Chinese AEC professionals based on the extended model of BIM adoption and discuss how current Chinese BIM adoption in practice diverges from overseas BIM adoption strategies.
