The Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry is known as one of the prominent sectors contributing to economic stability in Indonesia. On the other hand, this sector is also responsible for significant environmental impact in the country. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a key innovative technology enabling advanced management within the construction and civil engineering industries and facilitating improvements in sustainability and asset management across the globe. BIM enables the achievement of three sustainable dimensions which are known as Triple Bottom Line (TBL). However, to enable the construction industry in Indonesia to expand and adopt this new engineering technology, the scarcity of the experts in BIM remains a barrier to initiate the migration from traditional management to BIM. From 40 respondents who participated in this study, only 2 respondents had competence in BIM. However, the awareness rate of Indonesian engineers about BIM is actually quite good with 67.5% of respondents having recognised BIM, although mostly with limited or basic knowledge. This research also defines BIM’s impact to sustainability aspects in construction.
