Building Information Modelling (BIM) is highly adopted by Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management (AEC/FM) companies around the world due to its benefits such as improving collaboration of stakeholders in projects. Effective implementation of BIM in organizations requires assessment of existing BIM performances of AEC/FM processes. We developed a reference model for BIM capability assessments based on the meta-model of the ISO/IEC 330xx (the most recent version of SPICE) family of standards. BIM-CAREM can be used for identifying the BIM capabilities of the AEC/FM processes. The model was updated iteratively based on the expert reviews and an exploratory case study, and was evaluated via four explanatory case studies. The assessment results showed that the BIM-CAREM is capable of identifying BIM capabilities of specific processes. In this paper, we present how we utilized ISO/IEC 330xx for developing BIM-CAREM as well as the iterations of the model and one of the explanatory case studies as an example.
