Abstract: Building information modelling (BIM) has garnered much attention over the past years and still continues to in fields of architecture, engineering and construction industry. Despite being identified as a key technology and process to improve productivity and increase integration throughout the construction value chain, it is very novel in Ghana. The paper sought to empirically study the factors that facilitate adoption of BIM among quantity surveyors (QSs) using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT). Using a quantitative approach, factors identified in the UTAUT are examined. The empirical investigation was conducted using survey questionnaire. The dataset was obtained from seventy-three (73) practicing QSs in Ghana. The results indicated a significant positive impact of effort expectancy, facilitation conditions and hedonic motivation towards BIM adoption. Surprisingly social influence and performance expectancy had a negative impact towards influencing BIM adoption. The original contribution and value of the paper is use of UTAUT2 to provide empirical evidence on factors that facilitate BIM adoption in Ghana amongst QSs.
