Executive projects must guarantee that technical specifications are properly interpreted, so that construction work can be adequately implemented. In view of the upcoming automation of building sites arising from the cyber-physical system-based Industry 4.0 framework, the detailed design “grammar rules” are bound to change, too. The reported discussions focus on information integration between on-site and off-site production, as well as among humans, machines and sensors. This study surveys and updates the state of the art in the research of the building process automation. Based on that, it defines an information management model for integrated processes which encompasses the entire construction process (Integrated Design Process, Construction Management and Facility Management) and it is ready to be shared on the cloud.
