Currently, construction industry becomes more innovative, competitive and complex, more participants are involved in projects and thus, more integrated collaboration is needed especially during the design phase of the construction life cycle process.Accordingly, the construction industry especially the developing country including Malaysia has been urged to use innovative construction techniques, and to shift from the traditional practice of project delivery to an integrated practice. Unfortunately, most of the current construction project developments especially in Malaysia are still based on the traditional construction process approach; fragmented and separation of the design and construction phase. This fragmented practice has been widely criticised due to the related problems such as reworks, time delay, rising costs, lack of communication and coordination, and wastages. This paper aims to highlight this fragmentation issue and discuss the definition, concept and potential of Building Information Modeling (BIM) as an integrated tool that can minised the issue. Further, the discussion of research process on how to develop a framework of BIM implementation in Malaysian will be concluded.
