The aim of this research is to appraise the challenges and prospects in the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in the construction industry in Nigeria. It analyzed the uses of BIM in the construction industry, determined the stakeholders perception of the benefits, risk and benchmarks in the adoption of BIM in construction practice and process. It examined the extent of its interoperability in bringing together the different participants and processes of construction works for efficiency and effective construction management and timely project delivery. It compared the findings with the same studies carried out and/or currently being carried out in many parts of the world. Primary data were collected through structured questionnaires. The questionnaires were distributed and collected through personal contacts, letters, online groups and e-mails. Direct observation and interviews were made with professionals in the construction industry The secondary data were obtained from the exploration of various relevant literature and previous researches that have been done in relevant areas. A purposive and modified BIM measurement survey was used for this research work to gather the opinion and views of various construction professionals and clients A total of One Hundred and Fifty (150) questionnaires were distributed based on the sample population. One Hundred and Thirty-two (132) questionnaires were retrieved and used to obtain the required information for data. Tools used the purpose of this research include mean score, percentile and inferential method of statistical analysis. The statistical package for social science (SPSS) was basically used to create the frequency tables and the charts. The study showed that the application of BIM is economical and easy leading to improvement, enhanced technical and general management of construction projects which can lead to total control of cost estimates, prompt delivery of projects and quality are the most important key performance indicators in construction.
