Abstract: The construction industry is still lagging behind other industries in adopting new technologies for monitoring of performance and progress of construction works. In other industries like production or automotive such processes are already partly or fully automated. To improve effectiveness of construction scheduling and quality of works, this research proposes a BIM-based augmented reality application for site managers so-called AR4C. This application is combining Location-Based Management System and Building Information Modeling (BIM) to visualize in Augmented Reality key information related to progress and performance of construction works superimposed on the real world. This paper describes methodologies and technologies implemented in the AR4C application to control effectively construction works.
