The adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) will definitely improve the efficiency and quality of the AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) industry. However, many factors need to be improved before BIM adoption. Based on the interaction between institutions and technology, factors affecting BIM adoption in AEC organizations, within the context of China, are identified and analyzed. Firstly, 21 factors are identified by literature research. Then, an interpretive structural model (ISM) technique is used to establish a hierarchical structure, and matrix impacts cross-reference multiplication applied to a classification (MICMAC) is used for factor classification. The results indicate that corporate/project leadership and software functionality are the two fundamental factors. What’s more, the dynamic mechanism has gradually changed from top-down to a combination of top-down and bottom-up. View Full-Text
