From the nineties onwards, several reports in the UK have claimed that the construction industry is one of the most unproductive sectors. In this context, building information modelling (BIM) has been presented as a collaborative methodology or technology that can improve productivity levels within organisations, as well as when working among different enterprises. With this objective, the British government mandated the use of BIM in the development of public projects in 2011 as a way of enhancing collaboration among the numerous participants of the edification process. However, little attention has been paid to how the actual collaboration occurs. Dominant narratives, normally issued from managerial and engineering perspectives, tend to overlook and simplify social aspects as collaboration. By focusing on social aspects, the present work draws on practice theory and the concepts of enactment and technologies-in-practice to analyse the actions and practices that occur in the coordination process of projects. In summary, this study proposes that people do not necessarily enact BIM in collaborative manners and that it is instrumental to investigate more precise concepts such as synchronisation and exploration in order to understand technological change and provide relevant insights for the industry.
