Tremendous development in construction industry created large extent of work in infrastructure, residential and commercial field and with the growing complexity of construction projects and the shortage of resources there is a need for more sophisticated tools for construction planning and management. This paper proposes a visual method of scheduling with application of 4D model for better co-ordination and communication among project team. We developed 4D model with the help of software’s such as Naviswork Manage, Google sketch-up and MS office project. 4D model tools give the construction progress information in the form of project viewing, review and simulation. As per case study 4D Model is useful in the graphical presentation and communication of the construction schedule. It helped in effective visualization of the construction process as to view activities with their cost on timeline as daily, weekly. Use of 4D Model contributed in time saving and ultimately cost of construction by reducing the delay. 4D models help to improve construction plans as compared to traditional planning tools.
