Hundreds or even thousands of defects can be found during the building acceptance, hence the need for solutions which will facilitate the defect management, including identification, costing and repair. The aim of the paper is to present the possible use of BIM to support the defect management process during the acceptance of apartments in multifamily residential buildings. The paper presents a concept of quality control support application called MWBIM (Map of Knowledge BIM) which will collect data about discovered construction defects, their recording and servicing with the BIM technology. MWBIM will run based on Building Information Modelling (BIM), Augmented Reality (AR), Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) and maps of knowledge. There are three phases in the operation of the application: preparatory phase (planning the order of acceptance meetings and elements to be checked), acceptance phase (data collection and assigning them to the building information model) and the reporting phase (reports generation, assigning defects to contractors, follow-up of repair status). The intended uses of the application are mainly personnel involved in the acceptance of apartments.
