Abstract: In the current development of the construction world, many efforts have been made to improve the quality and quantity of work, both structurally and in construction management. At least the efforts made are efforts to improve and achieve better work results. Technology development is needed, including in the construction world where one form of technology developed in the construction world is BIM (Building Information Modeling). For practitioners who adopt BIM or plan to invest in BIM in their future projects, there is a need to understand BIM’s top investment priorities, risks associated after they start using BIM, and ways to increase BIM returns because this problem will influence decision making BIM investment. To overcome this, it is necessary to examine the main priorities of investment in adopting BIM, ways to increase returns on BIM applications, and risks in implementing BIM in developing countries, especially for actors who provide construction services. This study uses the Relative Important Index (RII) statistics to provide advice on how to improve and use BIM for industry professionals MEA or interests interested in investing in BIM or planning to use BIM in their projects.
