The adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the construction industry has revolutionized the way project teams collaborate and manage construction processes. Recently, the application of BIM has been extended to facilities management (FM), resulting in a new approach known as BIM-based facilities management (BIM-FM). This paper aims to explore the role of BIM-FM in achieving sustainable construction practices. The study employs a systematic literature review to examine existing research on BIM-FM and its impact on sustainability in the construction industry. The findings suggest that BIM-FM can significantly contribute to sustainable construction practices by improving the communication and collaboration among stakeholders, enhancing the efficiency of building operations, reducing maintenance costs, and optimizing energy consumption. BIM-FM enables the collection and management of building data throughout its lifecycle, which helps to identify potential improvements in the building's design, construction, and operation phases. BIM-FM facilitates the integration of sustainable strategies into the building management process, such as energy-efficient systems, and sustainable materials. The adoption of BIM-FM still faces several challenges, such as difficulties in data transfer, lack of interoperability, and the need for skilled professionals. In conclusion, this paper highlights the potential of BIM-FM in promoting sustainable construction practices and encourages its wider adoption in the industry. Policymakers, industry professionals, and researchers can benefit from the insights provided by this study to further explore the opportunities and challenges of BIM-FM for sustainable construction.
