This paper designs an Integrated Management System for building constructions based on USNs, which consist of diverse sensors, actuators and RFID attached devices so that the system can monitor the status the construction environments via the USNs and analyze the status information of the construction sites. Through the designed system, we expect the construction management to be carried out efficiently and rapidly for managing and monitoring the resources of workers, materials and equipment. Finally, the system can reduce both the construction cost and its building period.
