    From Latham report (1994) and Egan report (1998) addressed that the construction industry still have room for improvement. The advert of BIM will bring the industry to another level. This study investigates the barriers of Building Information Modelling (BIM) on Construction Project Management in local construction industry. Further investigation involved collection of primary data via internet-mediated questionnaire which allowed for this unique and its conclusions to be made. Further, secondary data was collected from books, reports, journals and other written material which related to this topic. The research found out that most of the respondents are aware of BIM but they are not using BIM and more than half of respondents not using BIM on more than 40% of their project. This is mainly due to the following barriers: cost, interoperability, contractual and legal issues and poor client demand. In order to overcome those barriers, clearly understanding of BIM was rated as the primary solution. Furthermore, the government policy was deemed to be the major factor which accelerates the adoption of BIM. However, most AEC members are still at level of BIM maturity model while the target of the government is to reach level 2 by 2016.
