Construction management is generally characterized with project-based management which is scattered with separated responsibilities from independent construction participants and separated phases from the lifecycle of construction. Efficient construction collaboration among all participants and construction lifecycle is crucial to improve construction management performance. Supply chain management is an innovative and systematic approach to resolve many problems in construction collaboration, but the construction supply chain is relatively fragmented and inefficient since construction management process and collaboration are unique. This paper presents a systematic supply chain management model for construction projects, and construction information is specified and illustrated for supply chain management. The information flow in the construction supply chain system is optimized to improve construction collaboration performance, and an efficient internet-based construction collaboration model is suggested to accelerate the innovations for management of construction projects.
