Abstract: BIM has become the new international benchmark for the efficiency of design, construction, and maintenance of buildings. It is the platform that brings about the collaboration between project stakeholders and the improvement of project outcomes. The aim of this study is to investigate the BIM awareness level of Nigerian Quantity surveyors. A field survey was conducted using a structured questionnaire, self-administered. The survey revealed that professionals are moderately aware but far from implementation. Professional bodies should organize rigorous awareness campaigns (workshops, seminars, training, etc.). This will prepare Nigerian Quantity surveyors for the technological revolution.
Keywords: BIM, BIM awareness, BIM knowledge, BIM implementation, Quantity surveyor
