The adoption of building information modeling (BIM) has a strong potential to influence project performance positively. However, the implementation and use of BIM also involve challenges and risks that must be considered for its practice's success. This study aims to identify gaps and future research direction within the field of BIM and risk management. Besides, it explores the relationship between risks related to BIM implementation and project success dimensions. For this, a literature review is applied, merging bibliometric and content analysis. The results show that the three most frequently mentioned risks are technological interface among programs, followed by interoperability issues, and inadequate knowledge or expertise. Besides, insights pinpoint the positive relation between the BIM critical success factors and the risks associated with BIM, particularly in the design phase.

Keywords: Building information modeling, BIM, risk, uncertainty, project performance.
