In recent years, Information Technology (IT) has been transforming business practice in many sectors resulting in efficiency gains and improved services for the client.

The construction industry lags behind other manufacturing and service industries in adopting the new technology.

To promote the wider use of IT in construction, it is essential to equip practitioners and graduates of construction related disciplines with knowledge of existing construction IT applications.

This book provides an overview of a broad range of IT applications currently available for all stages throughout the life cycle of a building project, from essential office and information management through to computer-aided design (CAD), cost estimating, project planning and scheduling, and facilities management and building maintenance.

It is an invaluable and handy reference for construction professionals and clients, as well as being a clear and comprehensive text for students studying construction, building or architectural courses.
