The Internet of Things is about the use of insightfully associated gadgets and to utilize data collected by embedded sensors and activators in machines and other actual items. The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing every part of the design how we occupy them, how we oversee them, and even how we amass them. This paper proposes to contemplate the status of usage of IoT in Construction industry and its issues and difficulties. The goals are to find the overall use of IoT and its acknowledgment in Construction industry; to examine the responsiveness of the key players to the use of IoT and to uncover the issues and hindrances of IoT selection. A Questionnaire review was directed to survey the responsiveness of Construction industry in IoT application and the current practices on IoT and the issues in receiving IoT framework. The collected responses from various stakeholders of construction industry is analysed by SPSS software and the findings are highlighted.
