Abstract

The application of building information modeling (BIM) technology has effectively supported the high-quality development of building sustainability and informatization in China. However, few studies comprehensively analyzed the enacted policies, prevalent applications, and existing barriers of the latest application and development of BIM technology in building industry from building sustainability and informatization perspectives to provide effective consultation and guidelines for its rational scale application in China. This paper firstly made a statistical analysis on the policies and standards of BIM technology issued from 2011 to 2021 in China. Moreover, the latest application, development and existing issues of BIM technology in building sustainability and informatization were also comprehensively discussed and analyzed. The main conclusions indicated that the application status of BIM technology for building sustainability and informatization in China was large in quantity, wide in scope, but low in level. The existing issue and limitation in terms of BIM application in China was mainly due to the lack of standards and domestic-oriented tools. Finally, the future outlook and recommendations of BIM technology for building sustainability and informatization in China were also presented as avenues for upcoming research.
