This paper, presents a framework for a site layout system designed to accommodate the dynamic nature of construction sites. In the proposed system, construction facilities are considered as objects, and the knowledge associated with each is encapsulated. In that, it allows the user to add, delete, and reconfigure a physical object in relation to others within the project being planned. This open architecture assists in benefiting from experts' knowledge. The computer model is developed in CAD environment and makes use of object-based design concepts. The main features of this model and the inter-connectivity among its basic components will be described in the paper.
