Automated dynamic management of road construction sites has been studied within the DigiINFRA research project in Finland. A review of currently available commercial solution, including most popular commercial softwares and systems in global markets (Topcon Sitelink3D, Trimble applications, Novatron Xsite, Leica iCONTelematics, Infrakit), is drawn. Test results of the last campus site experiments using the special DSCC (Dynamic Site Control Center) prototype system developed in the DigiINFRA research project are presented and analysed. Some site observations of the use of the commercial site control systems are presented as well. The special demands set by the dynamic site management to the development of general information modelling or national infra BIM specifications and the related open information transfer standards are introduced and evaluated.
