Architectural practice went through various changes in time to adopt emerging technologies. Current and developing Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies enables the integration of project partners in early phases of a project life cycle, differing from traditional project delivery processes. Since BIM impacts people, process, and technology (PPT), the adoption of BIM invites radical transformations in these aspects. The aim of this study is to investigate BIM adoption in small design offices from a socio-technical perspective by focusing on individuals’ experiences to analyze the motivation for BIM adoption, the factors in adoption, and the strategies through which BIM is integrated into the architectural design processes. Case study analysis is used as the research method and data was collected through five interviews from two offices. Afterwards, analytical coding was implemented to analyze the data. Findings demonstrated that the level of BIM adoption is related to the coevolution of PPT. The inefficient workflow of previous processes was found to be the main motivation for BIM adoption. Whereas the impact of people was a major factor in the adoption phases on the strategies for adoption and barriers in adoption were mainly human related. People were a critical factor in making the decision to go through the adoption. Technological aspects, instead, were considered later when the decision on adoption was given. These findings showed that the impacts of BIM adoption factors, PPT, vary throughout the BIM adoption phases. The major human-based issues in early phases of adoption showed that to implement BIM in current workflows a socio-technical approach is essential.
