This article presents the results of an exploratory case study dedicated to a BIM project and discusses the perception that professionals have of their practices and the BIM collaboration processes. It suggests that the roles of BIM specialists are not the same from one discipline to another, and that they are not just technical roles. In addition, the information sub-process seems to crystallize around BIM managers, which tends to create two sources of leadership in a project: BIM managers and project managers. Finally, the study shows a gap between the planned processes and those actually used in the project. The use of a big room, to bring together the owner and the other disciplines, seems to be particularly useful It serves as an integrator, information is better shared.
