Project development is a complex process where many stakeholders work together. Employer and main contractor are the base stakeholders, whereas designer, engineer, sub-contractors, suppliers, supervisors and consultants are other stakeholders. BIM is a tool that should be considered by every stakeholder with the opportunities it offers. The main goal of this paper is to explore the problems associated with the adoption of BIM in multi-stakeholder projects. The paper is a conceptual study, summarizing the author’s practical experience with design offices and construction firms working with BIM. In the transition period to BIM, three of the challenges are examined: the compatibility of supplier companies with BIM, the need for two-dimensional drawings, and contractual issues related to BIM. The paper reviews the literature on BIM usage and reviews the challenges in the transition stage to BIM. Finally, a number of suggestions for the future about accelerating BIM use is provided.
