Abstract: Currently information and communication technology is used extensively in most industries. The construction industry, however, is lagging in adopting and using information communication technology. Buildings, and the construction thereof, is a very old discipline, going back many centuries, yet the industry is slow in adopting these technologies. Construction informatics is also a relatively young and immature field of applied science and not well-defined. This paper investigated the reported research as published in journals and presents a classification of research themes on construction informatics. A classification of the themes is presented, indicating the main focus of each theme.
