Misconduct often happens in the construction industry because of its scale, complex contract structure, competitive and fragmented nature. It leads to an unethical issue. The unethical issues and the impacts hindered the development of the construction industry in Malaysia and affected the national growth development. As the construction industry is now moving forward to the 4th industrial revolution, it is worth investigating whether the adoption of digital transformation can make some changes to the unethical issues in the Malaysian construction industry. This research paper aims to examine the construction players' perception of the usage of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in reducing the unethical issues in the Malaysian construction industry. A quantitative research method is adopted and the data is collected by a questionnaire survey. There were a total of 101 responses received from the construction industry practitioners in Malaysia. Data collected was analysed by reliability test and descriptive test for further evaluation and analysis. The finding shows the usage of BIM through its function of 3D project visualization, clash detection, better communication flow, and centralised single repository data storage are potentially reduced unethical issues. This research provides a better understanding to the construction industry practitioners on the possibility of BIM implementation as a potential tool in reducing unethical issues in the construction industry.
