Construction technology is more important for project management, as it influences on construction schedules and monitoring. The construction commerce requires a very perfect preparation of planning, development of schedule and monitoring the construction process of the plan exertion which permits the complete optimization of the rate, spell and incomes. The paper promoting the 4D GIS concepts and integration technique and representation of non-spatial and spatial information’s such by means of drawing, resource, and prepared schedules in same GIS environment. s Instead of using the older, traditional methods of auto CAD drawings and schedule sheets, one can integrate them on a stage to create a 4D view of the project using GIS. The project presenting a 4D application of GIS in construction technology and management, by introducing Microsoft project (MSP) and ARCGIS or ARCMAP, which integrates schedules, 3D model of Building plan and resources composed through 4 Dimensional skill to deliver 3Dimensional + 1 Dimensional =4Dimensional Graphical picturing ability for monitoring the construction project site. In this project a G+1 building has been selected for the research in which all the working drawing are converted into 3D plan and according to it schedules are prepared in MSP software then they are imported into ArcGIS environment to get 4D output. This 4D output provides better visualization of construction work progress by which the engineers can trace the technical error of the project by taking better decision and can monitor the delay of work to reduce the cost overrun of project and rework can be avoided by early notification.
