Abstract: Project scheduling in construction refers to a roadmap of all activities of the project that should be done in a given order and within the time allotted to each activity. In 1910 Henry Laurence Gantt created Gantt chart to plan, coordinate and monitor construction sequence over time. It became the most used technique for scheduling, but it does not visualize the construction progress to users and also do not have the ability for clash detection. As the global construction projects are expanding day by day there is a rise in demand on resources, so there is an increasing need for a sustainable process for construction scheduling. 4D BIM (Building information modelling) is the proposed solution for the above problem. Through this technology, stakeholders and contractors can envision project success from design to construction while construction project managers can aggregate model data and quickly react to changes in real time. 4D BIM is adding the 3D model to time (schedule). It is a process that can add a lot of value to design and construction saving both time and money. The present papers studies about the importance of 4D BIM in construction scheduling and reveals the perceived value of 4D BIM in construction. This study mainly concentrates on simulation of construction sequence using 4D BIM for integrated project delivery and effective utilization of 4D application in BIM to resolve design conflicts and monitoring the project status by visualizing the time constraints.
