Abstract

Building information modeling (BIM) and Augmented Reality (AR) have many potential benefits if it can be implemented on the construction site. However, the adoption is very limited so far. Till now, construction workers get information mostly in a paper-based format, which is an obstacle for innovation implementation on site. To identify which forms of data provision are more preferred, and which attributes would influence construction workers’ acceptance of innovations on-site, this paper reports the results of two stated choice experiments using discrete choice methods. A total of 160 valid respondents were recruited from construction sites in the Netherlands to complete an online experiment. The mixed logit (ML) model was estimated to unravel construction workers’ preferences. The results show that construction workers are willing to accept new forms of data provision and new technologies in general. They are more likely to accept innovation if there is enough guidance.
