The French plan for the digital transition in buildings (Plan de Transition Numérique dans le Bâtiment - PTNB) has identified the needs of construction professionals in digital tools to be used in office or the construction site. A survey was carried out by interviewing 19 professional organisations concerned. The identification of needs will enable software publishers and digital tools designers to know the expectations of the professionals in order to best meet their needs. The needs identified have been classified into three levels (pyramid of the hierarchy of needs).
