Abstract— Construction progress evaluation is considered an important process in construction project management. Conventional progress evaluation is time and cost consuming. In recent years, new technologies such as photogrammetry and artificial intelligence have been playing an important role in many industries including the construction industry. This study attempts to use such technologies to evaluate construction progress. The actual progress was captured by photo taking, then a 3-D model was generated by means of the point cloud. The 3-D model of the construction (actual progress) was compared to the plan, which is planned using 4-D modeling. The results showed that the 3-D point cloud based model of the actual construction progress developed can be used to evaluate the construction progress compared to the plan with less than 0.1% error. This technique may be used to reduce some arguments between owner and constructor on construction progress.
