Abstract The implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is revolutionizing the construction industry; transitioning from 2D to the nD digital world. Although implementation has increased, there remains confusion towards the term 'BIM'; whether it should be considered a term expressing a form of technology or something more. This may appear as a simple question; however, there remains no definitive definition of BIM which has resulted in a variety of perspectives, influencing different methods of its implementation. This paper investigates current BIM literature that explores its implementation in the industry, in an attempt to shed light on the different perspectives regarding the term. With a better understanding of the term of 'BIM', organizations will be better equipped with understanding how it should be managed when integrated into their construction projects.
