The concern towards information management in construction industry has been changed over the past decade with the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM). With this influence the Government Soft Landing Policy focuses on early end user engagement to enhance the in-use performance of buildings. Literature reveals number of advantages that BIM promises on enhancing the efficient management of buildings. However, many of these findings explain what BIM can do and only limited effort has been taken to reveal the mechanism to exploit those good practices. This knowledge gap has slowed down the adoption of BIM beyond government projects. The success of BIM is based on information it holds. Hence this paper attempts to investigate the value of construction information to the facilities management to understand optimum level of information to be handed over through BIM. Also, it further attempts to explain how BIM can be used as a vehicle to improve such value. 14 interviews were conducted among construction professionals to gather the value perception of information. The qualitative data were analysed through thematic analysis based on grounded theory. The information value matrix was developed to assist facilities managers on understanding information requirement and value of information.
