In the realm of construction, disputes can often be the unwelcome guest that disrupts the harmony of a project. These disputes can stem from a variety of factors, ranging from environmental challenges to behavioural issues, and they not only waste time and resources but also strain relationships between stakeholders. In the Malaysian construction industry, where precision and efficiency are paramount, addressing the root causes of these disputes is of utmost importance.

One of the primary factors contributing to construction disputes in Malaysia is a lack of clarity and precision in the contracts between involved parties. Construction projects typically involve multiple stakeholders, including the owner, main contractor, subcontractors, sub-subcontractors, and design professionals.

When these parties are not on the same page regarding project specifications, scope, timelines, and responsibilities, disputes become almost inevitable. These disputes often revolve around issues such as construction delays, variations, efficiency problems, and cost overruns.

However, the industry has not been sitting idly by. To combat these issues, the Malaysian construction sector has embraced innovative solutions, and one, in particular, has made a significant impact – Building Information Modelling (BIM) or 3D modelling.
