|Abstract: ||It is important that the knowledge generated on construction projects is captured and
shared between project team members for continuous improvement, to prevent the ‘reinvention
of the wheel’ and to avoid repetition of previous mistakes. However, this is
undermined mainly by the loss of important insights and knowledge due to time lapse in
capturing the knowledge, staff turnover and people’s reluctance to share knowledge. To
address this, it is crucial for knowledge to be captured ‘live’ in a collaborative
environment while the project is being executed and presented in a format that will
facilitate its reuse during and after the project. This paper uses a case study approach to
investigate the end-users’ requirements for the ‘live’ capture and reuse of knowledge
methodology, and shortcomings of current practice in meeting these requirements. A
framework for the ‘live’ methodology that satisfies the requirements is then presented and
