As part of a broader enquiry into the theoretical foundations of building information modelling (BIM), this working paper identifies and describes the definitional and terminological considerations attributing to this endeavour. This not only concerns the challenges associated with defining BIM, and the myriad of perspectives from which this can be considered. But it also identifies those types of structures or forms that have been adopted or proposed as a means to understand and frame BIM. Further emphasis is given to examining and distinguishing those structures generally described as frameworks, including when referenced in terms of BIM. Relevantly, and notwithstanding the emergent nature..
