The article presents the original results of empirical research focused on application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) practices, specifically on detection of clashes in a BIM model. This research is part of the project founded by the European Union. The study presents methodology, experimental phase and findings. The tests were conducted in five clash detection programs.Acomparison of the results in terms of the quality of the feedback, and an assessment of its usefulness contributes with new knowledge that enhances sustainability aspects of BIM.
