Abstract

The paper summarizes findings from field evaluations and controlled laboratory usability evaluations of new mobile Information and Communication Technology, ICT, support used by craftsmen at construction sites as well as a discussion of methodologies for user centred ICT tools design. The findings are derived from the Danish project 'IT at the Construction site' started in 2003 and ended in may 2005. The project is now followed up by the newly started 'IT and resource management at the construction site' project. The project has involved several small to medium sized construction enterprises, organizations and institutions within the building domain as well ICT tools providers. The Danish Ministry of Science Technology and Innovation financed the project.
