Abstract: In recent years, the Hong Kong government has been actively encouraging the construction industry to use Building Information Modelling (BIM) for enhanced productivity and sustainability. This study has thoroughly examined the effectiveness of BIM for the local MiC industry by identifying the list of potential applications and barriers which are closely examined and discussed. Interviews of local construction experts confirmed the validity of the list, and the subsequent questionnaire survey analysis revealed the relative significance of applications and barriers. The results showed that the use of BIM would be more effective in the design phase rather than the latter MiC project phases. The overall output of this study would facilitate stakeholders in understanding the benefits of BIM-enabled MiC technology for Hong Kong and in formulating better strategies to overcome the barriers towards its successful implementation.
