Digital construction builds on diverse tools such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) for real-time project monitoring and data completion for asset management. BIM uptake presents positive productivity gains for measuring project performance. The significant contributions are attributed to various dimensions in the overall project performance which includes trust. However, due to the increasing availability of BIM benefits, the influence of real-time applications on such benefits requires continuous exploration. This study aims to examine the influence of trust on the real-time application of BIM in projects. A survey was conducted on construction practitioners who utilised BIM and/or real-time applications to investigate the influence of trust in BIM on project performance. Two groups of data–respondents who did not apply real-time applications and those who applied realtime applications were analysed with partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLSSEM). The study revealed a significant relationship between trust in BIM and project performance in both groups. However, the findings also revealed that the respondents who applied real-time applications had more confidence in BIM physical attributes whereas the respondents who did not adopt real-time applications relied heavily on the BIM workflow that was reasonably designed and developed based on shared understanding to impact positive project performance.
