The aim and purpose of the research are to analyse the performance of the technical supervision of the investor within the Czech construction Civil Engineering during the construction, particularly focused on transport line structures. It is about clarifying the meaning and role of technical supervision in the public sector in transport structures. By analysing the activity of the technical supervision, it will be possible to find the space, if and how this service can be automated, or how it can be made more efficient. A questionnaire was conducted among workers who perform technical supervision to analyse the time-consuming nature of individual technical supervision activities. The obtained data were then analysed according to various categorizations, including the BIM model, and possible streamlining forms were proposed.
