Construction undergoes a massive transformation through the influence of digital economy on all its aspects. In our technology-laden projects world, various opportunities arise from novel ways to capture, clean, analyse and visualise a wealth of data, previously not tamed. Digital technologies and the pervasiveness of data create new challenges in project work. At the same time, digital transformation is not constant because digital technologies continuously evolve and become more integrated. To this end, to collaborate using this wealth of data and digital technologies, work practices do not simply become transform. The concept of extreme collaboration (XC), coming from NASA’s war rooms, is helping us understand how people behave, communicate, work together, and maintain relationships, crossing professional, inter-personal, hierarchical, organisational and geographic boundaries to collectively deliver project success. As the interfaces between digital technologies, projects, data and individuals become obscure, managing them is critical for success.
