Building Information Technology (BIM) has proven effective and useful
across the sectors in the built environment. This is critical to promote this emerging
technology, particularly to developing countries. Malaysia and Sri Lanka have been
selected for this book to highlight different levels of BIM position and to explain their
different backgrounds and the need for BIM development. It provides a clear flow of
message and understanding about relevant developments and activities in the
construction sector. The discussions made towards the countries can be referred by
other developing countries. The findings are able to provide new insights into future
uptake and development of BIM worldwide.
