The digitalization of the construction industry is accelerating the development of several digital tools to support decision making in the built environment, spanning all phases of construction projects, from the bidding, design, and planning stages, to construction and maintenance stages. These digital tools, based on improving technologies, enable more integrated and intelligent approaches to decision making, both promoting and supporting a more efficient and sustainable built environment.
Recent technologies such as BIM, IoT, digital twins, and artificial intelligence are progressively applied in construction, promoting interconnected and knowledge-based decisions. This Special Issue aims to gather new research and development regarding innovative decision support systems for the built environment, which are strongly supported by recent digital technologies.
