This paper deals with machine collaboration in modern construction sites like that proposed in the FutureHome building system and suggests a scenario for implementing a safe collaborative system. The collaboration is meant to happen between automatic machines and between machines and operators. Safety issues are discussed and treated as part of the FutureHome collaborative building system. An adequate IT infrastructure in the construction site is a key element for implementing a safe collaborative and information rich environment.
