    he application of building information modelling (BIM) during the construction cycle of any development varies. Systematically, the way BIM?s applied during the initial phase will have a direct influence on phases that follow afterwards. Previous research focused on the application of BIM and concentrated on various aspects, which included sustainability or how to overcome the loss of data/information. However, it limited its focus on the application during a specific phase of the project. Analysis outlined both the benefits and barriers of applying BIM during the conceptual design phase. The study suggests that an informed evaluation of the application of BIM during any particular phase should take in consideration different stakeholders? roles and responsibilities.
