This paper describes a holistic IT-system for the support of logistic processes on construction sites. Automatic identification of building materials provides the possibility for the linkage of information from the internet. While the identification system combines technologies like barcode, LF and UHF transponders, the linked information are stored in an EPC (Electronic Product Code) compatible way and can be used i.e. for product specific construction instructions or for the calculation of facility management ratios. Thus the system supports the whole supply chain and was evaluated with facade cladding elements during the construction of the inHaus2, which is a research facility with total area of more than 4000 m2.
