Abstract

This paper provides a design of the Information System architecture to support a connected construction site. In order to master the diversity and the complexity of construction site processes, theories are needed that separate the stable essence of the smart construction site from the variable way in which it is realized and implemented. For that, construction site processes were mapped before linking each data path with the existing technological tools using correspondence matrixes. The results enable the definition of a proper system able to deal with the resources allocated to the construction process functionalities. The main challenge faced in this research was to identify which pertinent data is needed that activates the resources to complete each given construction task.
