Tangible Interaction in collaborative scenarios represents a natural und intuitive way to explore and discuss complex issues in a playful way, supporting communication, negotiation and teamwork. We present a concept for Elastic Displays to support decision-making processes in the context of civil engineering construction planning, related to the research context of Building Information modelling techniques. This involves the exploration of spatial issues, as well as identifying changes to the project schedule and cost plan. We use the power of Elastic Displays to quickly explore semantic and time layers in complex maps and uses them in conjunction with an integrated overview of the project timeline and cost overview. Furthermore, we discuss some gestures used for interacting with the Zoomable User Interface and navigate Layered Visualizations with magic lenses. Finally, we discuss our findings from the implemented prototype and share some thoughts on future work for Zoomable UIs on Elastic Displays.
