—At present, there is a difficult situation in
promoting and applying Building Information Modeling (BIM)
in China. Many Chinese scholars made summaries of a range
of obstacles in different practices; however, there is no clear
guidance and effective strategy from which they can learn and
enhance their capacity in using BIM. In this paper, we analyze
the BIM application in China and seek to present what is the
most reasonable strategy, which is inevitably impeded by the
result of the existence of externalities. Moreover, analysis of the
obstacles and establishments of Dynamic Game Model based
on complete information are firstly proposed among
enterprises and government. The overall aim of the Model is to
find the relations between government and participants, and to
discover the practice method in BIM application. It is
concluded that the government with the most powerful
influence on the promotion of BIM application is expected to
formulate corresponding policies to improve BIM’s
development. Notably, since the Economic Efficiency, the main
influential factor for BIM applications, leads economic
incentive policies to be in charge of popularizing and deepening
BIM applications, the degree of motivation becomes a key
element to promote BIM technology. Therefore, we can
rationally figure out that the government should strengthen the
BIM technology research and its development in order to solve
the problems or obstacles of BIM applications.
