Construction projects involve numerous stakeholders and participants. Their communication processes can often times be tampered by ineffective communication systems. With the advent of mobile computing, the quality of communication between project stakeholders and participants could be significantly improved. In this study, for the effective communication among construction participants, an interactive communication platform is presented through integrating a location-based augmented reality and a mobile computing technology. The location-based augmented reality presents rich virtual construction information on a real world and the mobile device offers interactive and ubiquitous computing environment for construction engineers. This interactive communication platform is expected to advance the existing information management process so that field engineers can get all the necessary information on a real-time basis.
