Tracking and monitoring construction projects are essential tasks to make decisions on the projects. There are various techniques to collect and store data from the construction site. In the current construction sector, informatics play an important role in collecting and interpreting data from construction processes. In recent studies, various technologies such as RFID, UAV are used for surveying the construction site. However, there is a study about collecting and interpreting the collected data is still needed. In this study, the collected data is categorized by labeling with several dimensions (e.g. location, contractor) using business intelligence and data warehouse tools. Moreover, this technique allows us to construct relationships between activities and generate practical information. The major implication of this study for engineering managers is monitoring the public demands and construction processes within one framework.
