Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been an emerging concept in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry with a vast amount of promising benefits to construction projects. Implementation of BIM, however, requires comprehensive research and strategic planning. Industry-wide and organizational implementation guidelines and standards have been published around the world either to encourage organizations to adopt BIM or to present the minimum requirements to be followed where BIM implementation is a statutory obligation. In contrast, governments or organizations in several countries such as Turkey have not mandated BIM implementation and provide no guidance. Organizations in these countries which plan to adopt BIM processes are forced to develop their own implementation plans. The purpose of this study is to provide guidance in BIM implementation for construction companies in countries where BIM implementation has not been mandated particularly during the construction phase of the building projects. 23 BIM standards and guidelines covering the BIM execution process have been reviewed. Topics that need to be addressed by BIM implementation plans have been identified and categorized under four headings. A case study of BIM implementation at a large construction company that focuses on conducting quantity takeoff and cost estimation is presented, and unique challenges of BIM implementation in Turkish AEC industry are discussed.

BIM-CAREM: a reference model for building information modelling capability assessment
Yılmaz, Gökçen; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Department of Information Systems (2017)
Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been implemented by various Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management (AEC/FM) firms in various countries due to inefficiencies in traditional construction project management practices. AEC/FM organization require to gauge the effectiveness of their BIM implementations for measuring their performance and enabling continuous improvement in BIM usage. Therefore, various BIM capability and maturity models are developed to help organizations achie...
An investigation of legal aspects of BIM in construction contracts
Kaya, Fatih; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (null; 2019-04-17)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been adopted worldwide in recent years as a novel way of working that enables efficiency in the construction industry. Lately, numerous countries made it compulsory to utilize BIM in public construction projects. Similarly, BIM became a contractual requirement in some public infrastructure and Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) projects in Turkey. However, in order to benefit from the advantages of BIM, some legal concerns such as intellectual property, liability, legal val...
Modeling highway projects: The need for Highway Information Modeling (HIM) guideline and information exchange
Ertaymaz, Uğurcan; Atasoy Özcan, Güzide (2019-06-01)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of the latest trends in the construction sector and utilized for modeling, reviewing and analyzing building projects for the last two decades with benefits including visualization, planning, and estimation. BIM provides a well-organized and streamlined approach for building projects; however, its application for highway projects has been scarce. Progressing requirements, increasing number of stakeholders, integrated design solutions, expanding model uses and rapid ...
An Investigation of building information modeling maturity in turkish small-medium size enterprises architectural and engineering firms
Sarı, Ramazan; Pekeriçli, Mehmet Koray; Tanyer, Ali Murat; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2017)
Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry experiences Building Information Modeling (BIM) transition process in all over the world. As the firms have advanced on BIM implementation, a necessity to benchmark the BIM performance has emerged. A couple of assessment tools were released for the sector to be used by organizations, individuals and governments to benchmark the BIM implementation maturity. The architecture and engineering firms in Turkey are also in the midst of BIM transition. Howev...
Potential Utilization of Building Information Models for Planning Maintenance Activities
Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Garrett, James H (2010-06-30)
The opportunities for leveraging Building Information Models (BIMs) for facility operations are compelling and yet utilization of BIMs during building operation and maintenance is falling behind the BIM implementations for design and construction. Current studies of BIMs used for the operations phase and commercially available technologies focus on transferring information from the design and construction phases to the operations phase by enabling creation and capturing of digital facility information throu...
