Reduction of virgin materials use by the construction industry has high priority and can be achieved by reusing structural and non-structural building components from existing buildings. The high value reuse of building components has not been adopted yet on a large scale because of several reasons, one of them being poor building information management. Therefore, this paper investigates the role of building information modeling (BIM) for that purpose. Based on a review of literature, a preliminary decision making framework is proposed that will be elaborated in the nearby future. The literature review revealed that the use of BIM in combination with other digital technologies looks promising, but that additional research is needed into the governance related aspects of BIM. © 2017 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
