Augmented reality, which brings a new perspective into information technologies, can be defined in the simplest form as augmenting the real world with information from the virtual world. Augmented reality is one of the innovative technologies that will provide significant benefits to construction project applications in the future. In this study, an augmented reality system is developed for improving construction project activities. This system shows the workers, equipment operators, engineers and managers how to perform the tasks of the specific job, step by step, with relevant supplemental information. Using smart glass in the system, the users will be able to reach the training and building methods about the relevant project activities. By this way, construction failures and spending money and time to learn the correct methodology for the execution of the activity will be avoided. The system is tested using the brick wall production phases. It has been proposed that the system can improve the quality of construction activities and thus, provide significant contributions to the construction industry.
