The Implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Construction Industry: Case Studies in Vietnam

Ngoc Quyet Le, Michael Er, and Shankar Sankaran
Abstract—The research introduces the combination of Diffusion of Innovation Theory and Activity Theory to investigate the current implementation of BIM in Vietnamese context. Data was collected through three large AEC firms (Architect, Engineering, and Construction) to present the comprehensive understanding of BIM practices in the construction industry. Qualitative approach was employed with the use of semi-structured interview to examine respondents’ perspectives of their daily BIM activities. Interpretive abductive strategy was used to interpret and transform everyday beliefs and meanings into social scientific knowledge that matches Diffusion of Innovation Theory and Activity Theory. Key findings were mediating forces affecting the BIM implementation including tools, rules, division of labour and contradictions among elements in the activity system.

Index Terms—Activity theory, BIM implementation, diffusion of innovation theory, vietnamese AEC firms.
