Today, the business world is experiencing an era of disruption in which startup companies can subvert long-standing companies. The disruption era is driven by the development of the digital world. The construction sector is one sector that will definitely be impacted by the digital transformation. However, digital adoption in the construction sector is much slower than that of other sectors. Cost and productivity efficiency, quality improvement and time accuracy are always a challenge from year to year in the field of construction. The Company as one of the leading construction and investment companies in Indonesia is always conducting studies and research to solve the above problems. The Company considers the need for a transformation into the era of digital construction as applied by some developed countries, one of which is by applying the concept of Building Information Modeling (BIM).
