With the rapid development of the construction industry, its projects are becoming more complex. Information management plays an important role in this scenario. Various information technology (IT) systems have been developed to support project information management. As a 3D object-oriented system containing geometric and non-geometric information of a project, building information modelling (BIM) has become widely used to manage the project’s information. On the other hand, knowledge is the most competitive resource in any organisation. In construction, knowledge management has gained increasing attention. Some IT-based systems have been established to aid knowledge management during a construction project. Although BIM is widely used in information management, BIM-based knowledge management is rarely studied. This paper presents a comprehensive literature review on BIM-based information/knowledge management. The literature on BIM-based information management is first reviewed in a systematic way. BIM-based knowledge management is the focus of the second part of the literature review. This paper concludes with a critical discussion to indicate the knowledge gap in current research and to identify future research questions and directions in this area.
