Abstract: Building information modeling (BIM) is an innovative concept and tool in construction management, which can be beneficial to both owner and contractor, particularly in design-build (DB) projects. A primary contribution of BIM is construction risk management, which is a critical part of project management. However, there has been a limited number of previous studies about the use of BIM for construction risk management. This paper reviews existing BIM uses and their implementation to manage construction risks by focusing on DB projects in the Philippines. A framework was developed to connect BIM uses with critical construction risks. The proposed framework was verified by an investigation of the BIM initiative of a construction project developer in the Philippines. This paper is part of an on-going research project, the results of which can subsequently be used to establish a comprehensive BIM-based system for managing construction risks.
Keywords: building information modeling, BIM uses, business process model and notation (BPMN), design-build project, construction risk management.
