Suboptimal information sharing is a key a factor that negatively impacts the construction sector’s massive productivity gap when compared to other sectors of the economy. This is due to management difficulties, supply chain issues and rework. Building Information Modeling has been shown to improve dissemination of information but has not yet been exploited to its full potential. In this paper, we propose a new notation for visualizing project information in a BIM context. It is inspired by music and dance notation, and is designed to overcome current limitations that may cause the technology’s limited use during the construction phase. A proof of concept was implemented and tested in an experiment with stakeholders. The use of the proposed BIM notations appeared to make access to and interpretation of available data more effective and resulted in more correct responses.
