Abstract

From the point of view of public entities with responsibilities within the built environment sector, Building Information Modeling (BIM) could bring a new public policy era. This paper proposes an approximation to BIM from the perspective of three different public theories. These perspectives would provide a BIM tentative explanation, in terms of the public values pursued by governments. Public organizations that implement BIM by importing successful cases, without reflecting if the organization is prepared to apply this change, could put their resources at risk. A proactive perspective about BIM implementation, aimed to drive and activate change management, allows organizations to achieve successful BIM goals implementation, while obtaining long-term benefits that go beyond BIM.
