Risk management is becoming increasingly important in the Architectural, Engineering, Construction and Facility Management (AEC/FM) industry for minimising the possibility of occurrence of hazards, improving safety and quality, and achieving project goals within planned budget and cost. Though a strong set of techniques have been developed to assist this work, it is reported that currently risk management is still an experience based manual undertaking based on multidisciplinary knowledge, and capturing fragmented information from various participants correctly for solving risk problems in time is challenging. In this process, Knowledge Management (KM) could play an essential role to facilitate risk information stored in a proper structure, communicated and reused effectively. As an emerging tool within the AEC industry, Building Information Modelling (BIM) not only is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a building but can also establish a repository of shared knowledge forming a reliable basis for decision making. Therefore, there is a fundamental need to integrate KM and BIM to support risk management throughout the lifecycle of a project; however, very limited research has been found in this area. This paper will first review the state-of-the-art of both BIM and KM, and explore the potential of developing a BIM and Knowledge Based Risk Management System (BKRMS). It will then present a conceptual model of the BKRMS and discuss the related technical solutions. Finally, recommendations for future research directions in this area will be formulated.
