Construction industry is in relatively early phase of adopting modern web-based technology, even though the web itself has already moved deep into its second phase. In this paper, common strategic points of key projects addressing the problem of engineering collaboration and communication since the mid 1990s are presented. Following this, common requirements for successful communication in the AEC are outlined and compared against new trends in business that emerged just recently. In addition, most promising technologies and applications are outlined and key predictions for the future are presented.
