Building information modelling (BIM) has been seen as one of the most promising recent developments in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. Although BIM can bring about a number of benefits to users, it also inevitably involves diverse risks. This study attempts to provide a critical review of the risks associated with BIM adoption in the AEC industry. Content analysis was applied in the literature review, and a total of 16 risks were identified from 20 analyzed literatures. “Unclear ownership of the BIM data”, “uncertainty over design liability”, “technological interface among programs” and “professional licensing issues” were mentioned most frequently in these literatures. This study can set a foundation for future research that would assess these risks and develop a networking of risk paths associated with BIM adoption.
