BIM enhances construction industry outcomes by connecting people, technology, and processes by incorporating extensive additional information and facilitating information exchange with project stakeholders. However, BIM software has limitations that have led to reluctance in its adoption. This research aims to explore the positive impacts and limitations of BIM software in various construction stages (pre-construction, design, construction, handover, and closeout), and seeks to improve understanding and find solutions for improvement. The research employed quantitative method by survey approach using questionnaires distributed to consultant parties in the industry. Results show that BIM has brought different unique functions that help assist the respondents. Despite that, limitations of BIM implementation found from the results are due to the lack of knowledge, high cost, and software capabilities to be further improved on. Respondents believed that the most effective solutions to tackle the limitations were mainly involved with education, enhancing BIM tools, and training.
