The Construction Industry Is Increasingly Incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Construction Technologies Into Projects. However, It Lags Behind Other Industries In Terms Of Digital Transformation. One Of The Reasons For This Disparity Is The Lack Of Evidence-Based Information On AI And Technologies In Construction Projects. Hence, This Research Aims To Comprehensively Understand The Benefits Of AI Techniques And Construction Technologies And Their Role In Achieving Objectives And Improving Functions. To This End, The Authors Followed A Three-Step Research Methodology. Firstly, An Extensive Literature Review Was Conducted To Identify 4 AI Techniques, 13 Construction Technologies, And 28 Benefits Relevant To Their Implementation In Construction Projects. Secondly, A Social Network Analysis (SNA) Was Performed To Validate And Confirm The Findings From The Literature. Finally, An Industry-Based Survey Was Distributed Among 52 Construction Practitioners To Achieve Two Main Objectives: (1) Assess The Benefits Of AI And Technology And Their Influence On Different Project Objectives, And (2) Quantify The Potential Improvement In Project Functions Resulting From Their Adoption. Study Results Offer Evidence-Based Information On The Impact Of AI Techniques And Construction Technologies On Construction Project Objectives And Help Construction Practitioners In Assessing The Benefits That AI And Construction Technologies Can Bring To Their Projects.
