Abstract: The concepts of Quality are closely associated with the concept of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in managing and improving the execution of construction projects that achieve a better performance in saving time, satisfying the customers, profits increasing, coast reduction, achieving safety requirements and maintaining the coordination and the integrity with the project basic parameters (time, cost and quality). Therefore, the purpose of the study is to address the importance and to assess the impact of the application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) on the implementation of construction projects in Saudi Arabia and the extent of how it is related to the Quality concepts over the last ten years. In order to achieve the purpose of the study, the descriptive analytical approach was used by distributing 12 questionnaires in engineering offices and construction companies. SPSS program was used in order to process the collected data. The study found that the construction projects in Saudi Arabia still suffer from the weaknesses in the application of Building Information Modeling (BIM), lack of administrative, scientific and technical competencies and poor application of the standards of the Quality concepts in the execution of construction projects.
