This paper presents the process of solving unforeseen events on construction sites – a frequent phenomenon throughout the industry. The current process of handling an unforeseen problem is described and contrasted with a future scenario in which I&C technologies are applied to solve unforeseen problems on large construction sites more efficiently: augmented reality, positioning technology, knowledge support and in-volvement of remote experts. The Mobile Maintenance Workspace, a range of applications to support mo-bile workers in their maintenance work, and its underlying software framework is outlined. The work presented here is currently being carried out in the European Integrated Project CoSpaces.
