AbstractThe Advanced Construction Technology Laboratory of the National Research Council of Canada was set up to conduct research into the application of computer techniques within the construction industry. This research has focused upon improving the flow and integration of knowledge and information throughout a structure's lifecycle. Central to this process is the explication of models of the construction process as a mechanism for representing and exchanging the knowledge within the industry. Current research in the laboratory focuses on the development of tools and techniques which support the use of building codes and the design process. These tools and techniques include the development of hypertext building code documents, minicode generators, systems for training building inspectors, plans compliance checking systems and techniques to support the reuse of designs.
