The construction sector of Luxembourg is a particular trans-national market where companies, methods, regulations and equipment are largely influenced by France, Germany and Belgium practices. As in other countries, IT seems to play a major role in sectorial innovation as a means for improving competitiveness of companies and efficiency of projects delivery. There is a need for understanding the maturity of the sector regarding IT for several reasons. First, the sectorial push towards innovation from public incentives and private bodies targets the areas of project management and competitiveness of companies relying on IT. Second, a nationally standardized, web-based project platform (CRTI-weB) is emerging and used in several projects. However, resistance is observed and is possibly caused by heterogeneous IT competencies of users. Third, BIM is gaining interest in the sector although the adoption rate remains very low. BIM seems not understood by construction practitioners as enabling new collaborative practices. On the basis of these considerations, the paper describes the setup of the IT Barometer survey for Luxembourg. The aim of the survey conducted is to provide a robust analysis of the as-is situation of the sector regarding IT. Although the survey is still in progress, the authors provide first evidences enabling to understand the conditions in which the nationally established CRTI-weB is being adopted as well as developing requirements for the development of a BIM implementation roadmap for Luxembourg.
