The economic effects of BIM are increasingly gaining interest. Understanding how to create business value from BIM is becoming of strategic concern for BIM users. The business effects of BIM have been examined in research, yet little is known about the actual economic consequences of BIM. Previous research has focused on BIM from a practical approach where efforts have been made towards measuring the performance of BIM. The purpose of this paper is to explore how actors in the Swedish construction industry perceive the business effects of BIM, but also what organizational prerequisites need to be in place for value creation in BIM. The findings indicate that the industry mainly perceives desired effects of BIM for the future and that few measure the economic effects of BIM. Most importantly, there is a need to understand the organisational prerequisites for value creation through BIM.
