This paper proposes a conceptual framework for developing a communication platform to monitoring construction projects remotely. The need for remote monitoring is a requirement today in the construction industry as the number of project sites has increased significantly and the expertise available to resolve site related problems is not easily available. Individuals with expertise are required to visit projects physically and as a result they are travelling most of the time and this results in unproductive utilization of their expertise. The proposed system integrates Digital Maps, CAD/BIM, scheduling software and live video into a single platform which can be used for communicating and resolving the issues remotely. The software Google Maps, Primavera, and Navisworks were used for the current implementation. The paper describes the architecture of the proposed platform and illustrates the features of the prototype platform under development.
