Abstract: Using the “tipping point” as a metaphor, the paper argues that the construction industry is ready to reap the benefits of using information technologies. Construction IT as an appropriating discipline is enabling us to have devices to speculate about designs, to have innovative modes of collaboration, communication and practice. “Virtuality” is the password for construction professionals to cross over into the experimental realms of installation and operation. The paper identifies the ingredients needed to ‘tip’ the balance for an accelerated penetration of information technologies into the construction industry. Core technologies are described as the prime mover of radical transformation in the construction industry.
