Abstract: A Construction project involves project management and financial planning at various stages right from the concept stage to the execution stage. This involves a large number of people working on different aspects of the project adhering to their specific job roles in collaboration with the others. These members not only work on the different aspects but also work on different software’s and platforms in order to create a holistic working plan to ensure timely and flawless construction activities. But these software’s only provide specific information feeded to it. A single program which would provide information of all these software’s collectively on one platform would not only make it convenient for sharing data but also help in reducing the delay and eliminating errors. A 5D model can be created linking the schedule of the project and the cost involved in it to the drawings on a GIS platform. In this research a 5D model of a Residential cum Commercial project Located in Prabhadevi, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India has been generated. This model includes the data related to the Schedule and Cost of the project, which can help in making decisions related to monetary aspects, Men & Material preparedness, verification of bills & Billing Audits. A 5D model holds Spatial data such as Project Schedule, Itemized Element costs and Quantities along with the 3D model of the structure. The conclusion of the study states that a GIS Model can serve as a real time data base for all the parties involved in the project at every level of its progression.
