The construction industry is highly fragmented and highly regulated, involving intensive activities across supply chain and lifecycle. Construction projects have become very complex, including varying activities and processes, and requiring inputs from a wide range of disciplines. However, massive amounts of data are generated because construction projects involve multi-discipline, multi-actor collaboration during a building project’s lifecycle. The generated data are sensitive with high concerns related to access rights, ownership, intellectual propriety and security. Until now, dealing with this information raises several issues such as data inconsistency, different data versions, data loss etc. Even though Building Information Modelling (BIM) offers a means of solving such problems, there is practical evidence to show that a governance model is needed to facilitate BIM management across the construction project supply-chain and lifecycle. A comprehensive survey was conducted with the aims of identifying construction industry practitioners’ requirements for developing a non-proprietary BIM governance model. Informed construction practitioners in the UK were the main contributors to this study. The findings of the survey reveal a need to develop a BIM governance model with its underpinning cloud infrastructure storage solution.
