Abstract: Information Technology (IT) is seen as an enabling mechanism to allow radical change in construction industry. However, firms in the construction industry are slowly responding and adapting to developments in IT. A key barrier to the more effective application of IT in the construction sector is the low level of perceived benefits from IT investments amongst construction business managers. Based on literature review and a survey in the local construction companies, this dissertation presents a framework to assist construction companies to predict, measure and evaluate the potential benefits that can or should be achieved by the introduction of IT. The framework is not only presented as a research result but also can be used as a guideline in practice.
