Abstract: Extending current work on visualisation in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sector, this paper describes an industry-led collaborative research and innovation project to develop and use a control room on the construction site. The work is inspired by NASA mission operations, with its large-scale visual display. It addresses the challenges of visualizing real-time construction data. Working with a main contractor, technology companies and other researchers, we first give an overview of the progress of the overall project to date and discuss our contributions on requirements, real-time analytics and visualization. We conclude by discussing the contribution to work on visualizing construction.
