While not technically a separate ‘stage’ – rather an ongoing process throughout the project lifecycle – the Business Intelligence (BI) element of a construction project involves the collection, analysis, and utilization of data to support informed decision-making and optimize various aspects of the project. BI, in construction, is crucial for optimizing project performance, enhancing efficiency, controlling costs, and reducing risk. It empowers project managers and stakeholders to make informed, timely decisions and adapt to changing circumstances as the project progresses.
