Thanks to the digital revolution, the construction industry has seen a recognizable evolution, where the world has been heading towards modern constructions based on the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM). This evolution was marked by the integration of this paradigm with immersive technologies like Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR). During the last few years, the development of BIM started to emerge. This paper proposes a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) of recent studies about the integration of BIM with immersive environments using VR/AR/MR technologies. Four electronic databases were exploited to search for eligible studies, namely: Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, IEEE Xplore, and Science direct. From an initial cohort of 239 studies, 28 were retained for analysis. The main findings of this review have been focused on stages of the projects’ life cycle in which the immersive technologies are being implemented, approaches/techniques used to ensure the integration of BIM with the three immersive technologies, along with the current limitations and perspectives.
