    Abstract

    Construction delay is understood to be one of the most common problems of construction projects in every country, and Malaysia is not excepted from it. Delays can bring negative impact factors on the performance of the project in terms of time, cost and quality. It is therefore crucial to identify the types and causes of delays in order to prevent delays from occurring. With that, Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been identified as a key process and technology in facilitating a more efficacious on project performance and minimising problems such as delays in the construction industry. With that in mind, Online Questionnaires were sent out to the Malaysian construction industry to identify the causes of delays and the delay impact factors on construction projects. Also, a questionnaire survey was carried out to assess the level of BIM uptake and its effectiveness in reducing delays through the impact on project performance in Malaysia.
