We explore the reasons why advanced information technology applications have not been adopted by the AEC industry. Within the industry, however, some sectors have made significant moves toward adoption of advanced IT. By examining these areas of success, we propose a framework for the incremental conversion of the AEC industry to fully incorporate advanced IT.
