The various phases in the life cycle of a capital project are planning, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance. Lack of interoperability between different software tools is a major problem in attaining continuous data flow between phases. Integrating communication among the various actors of different phases give researchers a new dimension to explore in an effort to increase quality, efficiency and productivity. Implementing FIAPP in the construction industry has gained momentum in Europe and just recently but to a lesser degree in the United States. This paper compares the status of FIAPP in construction industry in European countries and compares that with efforts in the United States and proposes a model for rapid deployment.
