Abstract [en]

The expectations on the impact of digitalization, and in particular Building Information Modelling (BIM), are high in both practice and research. Both academia and industry have paid much attention to and invested major resources in BIM during the last decade. However, the research area is not new and has been developing since the 1990s. During this time, most studies have applied rational and technical perspectives to understand BIM implementation and only a have regarded BIM implementation from more reflective and critical perspectives. There are however those who argue that the large interest in BIM research on the rational and technical perspectives, that often proclaim the impact of BIM for increased productivity and efficiency, has created a hype around the concept. This study takes off from this notion and aims to build an argument for broadening the research on BIM. This study examines what knowledge interests and perspectives that are most common in the research on BIM that has been used by and gained influence on the research community. This study examined the knowledge interests of BIM research in terms of knowledge domains (technical, practical and emancipatory) and sociotechnical interest. This study elaborates on effects of limiting research on BIM to technical and normative perspectives. By applying the concept of hegemony, this study contributes to the limited but growing interest in critical perspectives of technology driven change. Implications of a continued technological and normative predomination for future research and practice are also discussed.
