5D planning is the process of integrating 3D models of buildings or infrastructure projects withconstruction activities and cost planning. The process has been used successfully to rehearse the construction process and indentifying ‘hot spots’ and process clashes prior to site construction activities. Previous research(Dawood, 2008) has concluded that at least 7% of construction time and cost can be reduced if the technology hasbeen deployed at an early stage of construction process. However, construction planning within the context of urbandevelopment not fully exploited and tools and methods for synchronising and rehearing multiple construction planning within urban setting and identify, for example, traffic congestions and other environmental issues that canbe affected with construction processes and nearby sites. In this context, the aim of this paper is to deploy and develop 4D process and technology for urban planning and construction. The objective is to rehearse construction processes for urban construction which can involve a multiple of construction projects, both buildings and infrastructure can be constructed concurrently and can cause massive disruption and congestion at urban scale.Traffic management and flow can be incorporated within the urban simulation and therefore congestions caused bymultiple construction sites can be identified and resolved before construction starts.This paper presents a framework and tools for rehearsing multiple construction projects that was developed toidentify issues and hot spots at urban scale. The paper also present initial results of integrating Uc-win/Road visual urban planning with nDCCIR 5D planning tool. A simple case study was used to demonstrate the technology.
