||Information technology in construction has been developing into a research discipline and teaching topic in its own right. Corresponding chairs and departments are being set up in the faculties all over the world. However, IT in civil engineering has many attributes of an immature science be-cause its scope, vocabulary, methodologies are only loosely defined. It is a subject of influence from the technology push of computer science and technology pull of core civil engineering disci-plines and therefore lacking a clear identity of its own. In the paper, the author presents a concep-tual framework that can be used to define this discipline, its research issues, and can assist in structuring topics of the curricula. He claims that in order to understand the scope of information technology in construction, human activities must be well understood first. The presented frame-work is based on a combination of speech-act and process oriented view on engineering. A refo-cusing of research issues is suggested, based on 20th century philosophy, theory of science and education.
