Abstract

As the world witnesses the fourth industrial revolution, construction remains a newcomer that lags in its adoption of technological innovations. The information-intensive nature of the construction industry, coupled with its multidisciplinary nature, has pushed construction to enter the era of Big Data and has provided fertile ground for research on Big Data. Numerous efforts have been undertaken to investigate the use of Big Data and its impact on construction. This paper builds on the existing body of knowledge and explores the implementation of Big Data throughout the different phases of a construction project. By synthesizing the extant research corpus, this empirical study provides insights into the current state-of-adoption of Big Data throughout the lifecycle of a construction project, its sources, capabilities, and benefits. The findings of this paper are combined into a Big Data Framework that summarizes the "what, how, where, and why" of Big Data implementation in the construction industry.
