Abstract

Large construction projects involve multiple participants who need to collaborate in order for the project to be successful. To date, the collaborative process on construction sites has failed to take advantage of communications technology developments. This paper will discuss the results of empirical research in three contexts with regard to the adoption of new technologies in order to propose an acceptable system for collaboration in the construction industry.
