Abstract Although communication is an essential value in construction projects, the construction industry is confronted with the importance and use of information and communication technology (ICT). As most firms in developed countries have increased and will increase further their investment in ICT, this has raised productivity within their construction industry and resulted in an increase in the quality and speed of work, financial controls, communications, and access to common data. In our project discusses the scope of research on the application of information technology in construction (ITC). A model of the information and material activities which together constitute the construction process is presented, using the IDEF0 activity modelling methodology. The main use of IT in construction is office software, computer aided design (CAD), tools software and communication networks. Tools software includes cost evaluation software, quota management software, quantity calculation software, steel quantity calculation software. Internet based communication is the area that grows fastest. Application of IT in the construction industry remains weak because managers are not aware whether high levels of capital investment directed to computer systems and communication networks can guarantee significant gains in productivity and economic returns. The software tools tend to be general purpose tools like spreadsheet and text processing software or specialized, discipline-specific tools, in our project we use primavera for cost estimating and scheduling.
