Building information modelling (BIM) is a key area of construction digital transformation. Currently, the construction industry is getting ready for the mandatory application of BIM in the course of implementation of construction projects co-funded by the government. To determine the barriers, preventing the introduction of BIM, a study was conducted among participants of investment and construction projects to identify the risks of introducing BIM and analyze the risks in the context of the scope of activities conducted by the respondent's employer. The study was focused on investment and construction enterprises willing to introduce BIM. The source data were collected using the polling method (the questionnaire survey). The survey involved 180 respondents — representatives of investment and construction companies, including developers, designers, customers, investors, state and municipal institutions, etc. The study revealed such major risks as the unpreparedness of contractors to use information models (50 %), the risk of lower corporate efficiency during the period of implementation and adaptation of BIM (54 %), and the unpreparedness of the state (its representatives, authorities and government agencies) (48 %). The analysis of respondents' answers, broken down by the scope of corporate activities, proved a correlation between the scope of corporate activities, conducted by the respondent's employer, and the significance of risks. This can be explained by corporate functions and interaction with partner organizations.
