Building Information Modelling (BIM) has recently attracted substantial attention in the construction industry concurrent with the rise of digital urbanisation and its increased use of digital technology. Organisations in the construction industry have now started paying more attention not only to adopt BIM but also to ‘exploit’ BIM. Adoption of BIM can make an industry set itself as an example to others. However, exploitation refers to something beyond adoption which seeks more validity and reliability on its outcomes- the real benefits. BIM has the potential to offer a range of benefits. The benefits of BIM are connecting project teams, workflows and data across the entire project lifecycle from the design stage to the construction and operations stages. BIM allows its users to realise better ways of working and receive better outcomes while increasing productivity, efficiency, and sustainability. Although BIM benefits have been on the discussion for a while, it has never been rightly attributed to BIM exploitation. Therefore, this paper aims to see how ‘BIM exploitation’ offers the promised benefits of BIM at an organisation level. The research employs quantitative means to collect and analyse data from construction professionals in the UK. The questionnaire surveys confirm the trends and relationships between variables in the inquiry and helps creating a robust conclusion on how BIM exploitation leads to BIM benefits.
