Abstract: In developing countries like India construction industry significantly influence economic growth. Construction industry develops the infrastructure for a better world. Construction industry deals with large amount of resources. Timely planning of resources for smooth execution is important in such projects. Building Information Modeling (BIM) which was earlier used for representation of the building in 3 dimensions (3D) now aids planning process by incorporating the time and cost as 4th and 5th dimensions (4D & 5D) respectively. Timely planning of resources is possible by reducing the resource buffer. It also helps in improving coordination between different stakeholders in the project. 5D model is developed during the planning phase. 4D and 5D simulation helps in visually analyzing the execution process by which the errors can be optimized. Variety of software was used in developing this model. The current research is done to develop a 5D BIM simulation model to help the planning engineers to overlook the requirements or issues during the course of execution. An apartment building in Bangalore, Karnataka which is under the initial phase of construction is taken to validate the model. Construction projects involve exorbitant resources; therefore, it is important to carefully study and regulate the construction works and projects without delay and the current study provides insights for Civil engineering students and practitioners. It helps in proactive planning and holistically be prepared for any constraint or situation which may arise during the course of the project. It not only used during the course of execution but may be extended beyond that.
