    The paper presents the results of a joint work on the Integrated Building Information Management System developed and tested in the frame of the European research project I3CON funded from the 6th Framework Program. This innovative system proposes an innovative approach to dealing with building information managing, employing Wireless Sensor Networks and the Rule Based Engine for monitoring the building environment as well as for automatic control of its infrastructures (water, electricity, heating, cooling etc). It involved also the development of integrated user interfaces allowing location and context aware operation of the mobile system including methods and tools for their implementation for Building Service Operative applications. This allows mobile service personnel to have a full access to the building information system from their mobile terminals enhanced with location awareness (employing latest active RFID technologies), context awareness and multi-modal user interfaces for handsfree intuitive operation of a mobile system with little or no need for manual operation or control. A generic object browser was developed enabling of browsing building automation objects in real-time as well as static building database objects and properties using standard data communication protocols. The described technologies have been already deployed and tested in real environment of the residential Margarita building in the center of Madrid.
