Abstract: Infocomm technology is indispensable in the current construction industry. In order to drive Singapore towards an intelligent nation, various key economic sectors play a larger part. Being viewed as a niche sector for infocomm technology development, it is important to assess the adoption status of infocomm technology applications in the Singapore construction industry. Hence, the objective of this dissertation is to identify the role of construction industry in iN2015 master plan. A literature review was conducted to gather insight of the technologies trends in the construction industry. Following, primary data were acquired through the dissemination of electronic survey questionnaires. Then, additional information not covered by the survey were obtained through an interview with two professionals at Company X. The results were analyzed and the interview response is discussed with respect to each other. Adoption status of infocomm technology was evaluated at the organization and national level. The impacts of adoption on the organization, process, performer and operation performance were discussed. Next, the constraints and advantages of adopting infocomm technology were also identified. It can be concluded that the role of construction industry in iN2015 is to widely implement, use and integrate infocomm technology so as to move Singapore towards an intelligent nation. The analysis revealed that the status of adoption at both the organization and national level are relatively high. Lastly, the scope of this research is skewed towards the perception of quantity surveyors and hence may be inadequate in representing the entire construction population.
