The adoption of 3D modelling in construction has contributed many benefits to the industry, yet some of the construction players are still either unfamiliar with the software or not utilizing the software to its fullest potential. The objectives of this research are to determine the challenges faced in 3D modelling software, to postulate the solutions based on the identified challenges in 3D modelling software, and to investigate the strategies of 3D modelling in the QS profession. A qualitative method of research will be carried out to acquire the data and opinions from the quantity surveyors in the construction sector. Based on the findings, financial issues are the most significant challenges on 3D modelling, whereas training for construction staff and enforcement from the government is the most impactful solution and strategy. This study can boost the construction players' confidence in integrating 3D modelling in the construction industry. It also brings higher efficiency in daily operations and helps to improve the productivity of workers.
