Abstract: The management of information in engineering and construction organisations is facing a challenge due to the ever-increasing volume of information needs to be dealt with. This paper addresses the problems of information overload and value in the construction and engineering industries. Based on some exploratory studies on major engineering and construction organisations in the UK, major challenges in the current information evaluation practice in these two industries were identified. A through-life Information Evaluation Methodology (IEM) is proposed at the end to allow high value information to be easily retrievable in the future in order to support through-life knowledge and information management (K&IM) practice.
