Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a new emerging approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building process is being created to facilitate the exchange and interoperabilit;v of information in digital format. Despite the advantages derived from this paradigm, local construction industry is reluctant to deploy the technology in its service, delivery. The objectives of the study were to investigate the level of awareness and perception of BIM among Engineers and Architects in Malaysia. To realize the objectives, structured questionnaires were administered to 30 key players in the field of Architecture and Engineering randomly seiected from PAM and ACEM database. In addition to that, interviews were also conducted to some key players in design and construction industry to elicit BIM awareness among them. Qualitative analysis was used to analyze the result from interview while quantitative analysis was used to analyze the result of the questionnaires. From the research, it was found out that Architects and Engineers in Malaysia are aware of BIM but not many of them are implementing this technology due to some barriers.
