In the new era of computerized building information, communication in a design and construction project demand transactions of large volume building model data containing various engineering domains, which causes increased costs in handling large data and communication problems due to poor understanding about which data should be shared. In this study, the authors converted Information Delivery Manual, which is a documentation format for capturing workflow information among AEC project participants, into an UMLbased conceptual model and then created a database schema based on it. A client-server application for browsing and editing the database was also created.
