The AEC (Architecture Engineering and Construction) sector is a highly fragmented, data intensive, project based industry, involving a number or very different professions and organisations. This, along with the industry's strong data sharing and processing requirements, means that the management of building data is complex and challenging. We presents a solution to data sharing requirements of the construction sector by utilising Cloud Computing. Our solution presents two key contributions: (i) a governance model for building data, based on extensive research and industry consultation; (ii) a prototype implementation of this governance model, utilising the CometCloud autonomic cloud computing engine using the Master/Work paradigm. This prototype is able to successfully store and manage building data, provide security based on a defined policy language and demonstrate scale-out in case of increasing demand or node failure. Our prototype is evaluated both qualitatively and quantitatively and demonstrated using Google Sketchup. We evaluate our prototype in order to verify its performance when scaling to utilise additional nodes in the cloud and to determine its performance in case of node failures.
