ABSTRACT: For the construction industries to move into the knowledge society and knowledge
economy they need to be able to build upon their existing information base. This information
base is unique within individual countries (though often with significant overlap between
countries, for example, with Eurocodes utilised across Europe) and usually widely dispersed.
Drawing together the information resources within nations, and then connecting them with each
other to form transnational resources enables a more effective, informed, and intelligent
industry. I-SEEC is a collaborative project funded by the European Union with the overall goal
of creating an infrastructure to enable and link high quality commercial electronic information
services throughout its member countries. This project started in March 2000 and finished in
April 2001. It builds upon a previous EU project - CONNET (CONstruction information service
NETwork). This paper provides a description of the final state of the infrastructure, services, and
business models available through I-SEEC. The countries participating in I-SEEC are Finland,
