In view of the need to apply a new collaborative method in road projects in Ecuador, it is proposed the use of effective tools and adequate planning in order to avoid the waste of time and resources that today is affecting public and private entities, a consultant and a constructor in each of the stages at the time of executing a project. The use of the BIM (Building Information Modeling) methodology contributes an added value to a project in terms of schedule and cost, because it is done in a collaborative environment with good planning techniques, teamwork skills and good communication skills. In the case of the present work, since there is no experience of the implementation of a collaborative planning system in highway projects in Ecuador, so we focused on the experience of South American and Spanish construction companies, using the qualitative research narrative design as a method for collecting data, with techniques such as focus groups and life stories to then be analyzed through the ATLAS TI. These were done in order to establish the methodological patterns being used by companies to minimize or eliminate unconnected processes and activities, as well as to increase the use of construction standards and techniques to simplify construction projects. The BIM method has been adopted progressively in different countries in the last ten years because of obligatory standards that regulate the execution of engineering projects. As these norms are not yet mandatory in Ecuador, our objective was to show the advantages of the implementation of a collaborative management tools along the life cycle of a project.
