    This paper gives an overview of research undertaken within the area of Computer Integrated Construction (CIC) with particular reference to project integrated databases. Recent developments are highlighted and future directions are discussed. The paper starts by providing a historical background of the subject area. It then develops an argument for the use and benefits of integrated environments in construction. This is followed by a discussion about the research issues that need to be addressed in the next few years. These issues are investigated within a holistic view addressing technical, financial, cultural and process perspectives. This paper then addresses and discusses the various misconceptions about project integrated databases.
