1. Introduction
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is one of the most promising developments of
recent years in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC)(Azhar et al., 2015).
BIM refers to an intelligent process based on 3D model, which gives the AEC professionals
a deep insight and tools for plan, construct, design and manage the infrastructure and
buildings more efficiently. Due to this technology, proper virtual model of the building is
constructed in a digital manner. According to Chen and Nguyen (2017), BIM has started
embracing the aspects of sustainable development particularly, the social, environmental
and economic. For gaining a well-balanced sustainable performance, the influence of BIM on
every field of sustainability is necessary to be taken into consideration. This paper will
discuss how the important sustainability aspects are being attained by means of BIM. It will
present a brief literature review, critically analysing the different thoughts on the role of BIM
within the context of the AEC sector. It aims to deconstruct the existing information
management practices used by Architectural Engineering and Construction (AEC) actors
and communicate their impact on the industry business model. Furthermore, it will critique
the prevailing AEC research efforts and identify the areas for improving the aspects of the
project delivery by means of the application of the management, theory and practice of BIM.
Lastly, it will shed light on the benefits of BIM along with the risks and challenges associated
with it.
2. Literature Review on BIM and Sustainability
It is to note that the AEC industry was long seeking different techniques for
decreasing the time and cost overruns of projects and increasing the productivity and quality
within the industry. To their concern, BIM is offering them the potential that is required for
achieving their aims and objectives(Volk, Stengel and Schultmann, 2014). As it is already
stated above, BIM is an intelligent 3D model based procedure that gives AEC (Architecture,
Engineering and Construction) professionals tools and insights for planning, designing,
constructing and managing the buildings efficiently. As per Fountain and Langar (2018), BIM
