Abstract

The construction industry needs contemporary approaches in order to improve the performance of the construction process, in terms of both time and cost. Currently, the most significant trends applied for this purpose are building information modelling paradigm (BIM) and Lean construction philosophy. Following the rise of both paradigms, many studies have been conducted to explore the benefits of its application in isolation. As a consequence, the aim of this paper is to bring to knowledge a state-of-the-art overview of literature about BIM and Lean construction synergies. Firstly, a general overview of each paradigm is presented. Secondly, the synergies between both principles and their theoretical and practical applications are also covered. Finally, conclusions and recommendations for future researches are presented.
