During the construction projects’ execution we constantly face unpredictable situations and factors. This is why we always strive toward avoiding them or resolving them in the easiest or most effective way possible, using all the tools and operations at our disposal. The thesis describes some of the basic concepts of construction projects, their monitoring and controlling, and the use of information technology and its possibilities in monitoring construction and measure of the project's success. In the central part of the thesis I describe the real magnitude of the project Sarajevo bypass, the course of execution, and events and actions during the construction work. In the final park of the thesis I describe the methods for monitoring, control and analysis of a particular project, where the deviations from the original goals are visible. We can conclude that the use of information technology in controlling of a construction project is more than welcome, as it offers unlimited possibilities when it comes to data acquisition, and transparent and timely following of the project. In addition it allows us to see a thorough analysis of projects progress, even while it’s still taking place. Nevertheless, it is necessary to have practical experience and reasonably use of all the options available.
