Based on the CNKI database from 2002-2019, this paper conducts the comprehensive literature survey on the BIM applications in construction engineering. Aiming to pros and cons summarized from the current research examples, the BIM shows great potential and the related study is a rapidly evolving field in construction engineering. In general, the diversity of BIM application studies is involved in construction engineering, such as, design and construction of new building, operation and maintenance of the existing buildings. BIM can be a powerful tool if it was properly taken advantage. However, the BIM application in design is more emphasized than that in the other aspects, which hinders the popularization of its application. Therefore, suggestions for future research are given accordingly: (i) constructing a feasible and flexible system according to the different applications; (ii) expanding the research content based on proposed system; (iii) establishing a method of evaluation of BIM application.
