BIM can be defined in many ways such as system, approach, method, process, and information model. BIM technology has been adopted and used worldwide in recent years and continues to become widespread with its multidimensional approach and implementation possibilities. Despite the well-documented advantages of BIM, the use and adoption levels stay at limited levels in Turkey compared to its counter partners. The objective of this study is to identify the factors currently affecting the pervasive use of BIM in the Turkish AEC industry. For this purpose, an extensive survey study was conducted among the architects and engineers working in the Turkish AEC Industry. Reliability analysis, the index of relative importance (IRI) and exploratory factor analysis were made with the collected data using SPSS v. 22.0 statistical software. Findings from the study indicate the existence of eight factors affecting the prevalent use of BIM technology in the Turkish AEC industry. © 2022, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
