Although many researchers and practitioners are in agreement about the potential applicability and benefit of BIM in construction, it is still unclear why BIM is adopted, and what factors enhance adoption and implementation of BIM. Thus, the mechanism of BIM acceptance and use remains in question. Therefore, this paper aims to analyze the moderating effect of organizational culture relationship between influence factors and BIM acceptance. The key factors for BIM acceptance are identified through a previous literature by authors. And the types of organizational culture are divided based on competing values framework by Cameron & Quinn (1979). Based on the factors, a questionnaire was designed and sent out to construction organizations such as contractors, architects, and engineers in Korea. Using hierarchial regression analysis, we analyzed the moderating effect of organizational culture relationship between influence factors and BIM acceptance. These findings can be used in the establishment of a strategy for BIM utilization.
