Executive Summary

In the construction industry, there is a pressing need for computer systems that will facilitate information exchange and knowledge sharing among all industry practitioners. The Social Semantic Web Portal (SSWP) proposed in this paper will accomplish three tasks: the streamlining of information exchange about any individual project, the encouragement of knowledge sharing in general, and the virtual grouping of people with similar interests to form communities of practice. A domain ontology is developed in order to encapsulate knowledge about industrial actors and their roles in relation to sibling ontologies that conceptualize construction products and processes.
