— Building Information Modeling (BIM) is emerging as collaborative technology within the construction industry in different parts of the world. BIM then, can be seen as a model that contains information about the entire lifecycle of a building project. This information database and rich information model can be processed with the aid of computer applications. The information is not limited to the building itself but includes components and properties and processes of the building lifecycle. The aim of this paper is to explore the role of BIM in integrating the supply chain on a construction project. The theme could be further explored as a PhD research within the context of Australian construction industry.
