Known as an information-based industry, to manage a project in construction industry requires the most effective and efficient tools in project management, more specifically in managing the information transfer between project parties. To deal with the complexity and changing needs in the construction industries, these tools become essential to a project management team. Advances in information and communication technologies with cloud technologies, especially mobile phones, offer an alternative solution to overcome the issues on effective collaboration and information flow in construction projects. A review of previous research, case studies and technology reports shows how mobile information technology has the potential to provide an improved system for construction communication, information sharing and collaboration. This review paper will closely discuss the implications of mobile information systems in sustainable project management. The result proved that there is a great potential for this mobile information system to be implement in project management, especially in sustainability projects. The findings from this paper also show the effects on construction resources and the potential impact of improving sustainable project management in construction industries.
