  • Abstract:
    The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Plan of Work (PoW) together with Building Information Modelling (BIM) guidance documents, developed in the UK, are commonly used in Egypt and the Middle East. However, efforts from academics publishing articles about the experiences of the adoption of such BIM standards in Egypt have been very limited. This research investigates the use of a BIM-RIBA PoW in the construction industry in Egypt. The research aim was achieved through literature review and collecting qualitative data from industry practitioners. Focus group interviews was used to collect qualitative data, then analysed through consecutive stages of transcription, coding and structuring. The main finding of this study is that integrating the RIBA PoW in Egypt would be beneficial only if the established construction activities have been further detailed and linked to BIM concepts. A BIM-RIBA PoW has been developed through the identification of main BIM objectives and activities in each stage in the project lifecycle. © Penerbit Universiti Sains Malaysia, 2019.
