Blockchain use cases across entire lifecycle of a built asset: A Review


Blockchain is a key enabling technology towards the 4th industrial revolution of the construction industry. The aim of this paper is to map uses of blockchain technology across the various phases in the lifecycle of built assets. Of interest to this paper is a new classification of block-chain solutions in combination with other key enabling technologies, like Building Information Modelling and Internet of Things. The literature indicates that blockchain shows high potential for solving challenges across the en-tire lifecycle of a project and has an especially high po-tential to influence and possibly improve management in the Operation and Maintenance phase.
