Procurement with BIM: Lithuanian Situation Analysis and Further Development

Miroslavas Pavlovskis (Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Lithuania)


This article deals with the role and importance of procurement in the context of Lithuanian construction, and distinguishes the main weaknesses of the public procurement. The implementation of BIM and MCDM technologies during public tendering is described. The foreign good practice is analyzed, where BIM and MCDM technology is used during organization of public tenders in the construction field. The possibilities of applying the building information model are examined throughout the entire procurement process. The procurement organization model is proposed, based on MCDM and BIM technologies. It is found that implementation of BIM and MCDM technologies in the public tenders will be beneficial for both the state and the entire construction sector by reducing project uncertainties, risk expo-sure, shortening the project documentation review and, therefore, the construction time of the object.
