The advent of Building Information Modeling (BIM) offers new opportunities to further harness the efficiency of construction projects. Hence, to implement a BIM project in construction projects successfully without unforeseen confusion and troubles, the factors affecting the project's success must be identified and managed effectively. The research objectives are to identify the CSFs for enhancing BIM implementation and investigate the interrelationships among these CSFs. Fifty-one success

The results identified 15 factors as the most critical ones among the identified 51 factors, with the -coordination between all project parties-ranked the top. These fifteen significant factors have been grouped into an integrated structural framework that can help to enhance BIM implementation in construction projects. Also, this study developed a framework to measure the performance of BIM implementation which would help to follow the progress of BIM implementation along the project life cycle.
