Abstract: The strategic implementation of innovative, collaborative and integrated information is essential for the sustainable development of construction organizations in the new century. The emerging information technologies (ITs) offer construction organizations great potential to develop collaborative work (CW) management information systems in architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) projects. This paper presents an in-depth literature review of IT supported CW in A/E/C projects. Based on selected papers from well-known academic journals in construction management over a ten-year period (2000-2009), the review focuses on the implementations of IT in collaborative design, collaborative construction project management, and integrated inter-organization management information systems. A synthesis is presented on the state-of-the-art and trends of IT supported CW in A/E/C projects. Some limitations of past research studies in IT supported CW in A/E/C projects are discussed and future research directions are recommended.
