Building Information Modelling (BIM) adoption in the Malaysian construction industry are driven by the Ministry of Works. However, transportation construction projects are complex and high-risk, which in common circumstances, these kinds of projects are categorized under Transportation Ministry’s portfolio and are self-executed by them. As the consequences, the transportation projects are slower in coping with the use of BIM technology. As such, airport infrastructure construction is currently still using conventional project management practices without adaptation of BIM technology although a period of about eleven years has elapsed since BIM was implemented in public-sector projects. The capabilities of BIM technology in managing airport infrastructure development projects have yet to be explored. Therefore, this research aims to propose a BIM capabilities model for the airport project as a project management tool in order to educate and promote BIM in airport infrastructure development in Malaysia. A questionnaire survey was designed to identify the importance level of each variables and the significant relationship between the BIM capabilities and the project management process groups. Subsequently, a model was developed based on 33 significant BIM capabilities, which were arranged according to the importance level within the respective project management process groups. Through the proposed model, it could assist project stakeholders in understanding the BIM capabilities, available opportunities as well as benefits related to engaging BIM in airport project management processes. © 2021, Construction Research Institute of Malaysia.
