Purchase today to learn how to protect your organization contractually from the risks and legal challenges that come with BIM modeling.
The use of computer-generated modeling by design and construction teams continues to grow at a rapid clip. This technology, most commonly referred to as Building Information Modeling (or BIM), creates new opportunities for advanced collaboration and project coordination. There are challenges, however, including managing expectations with respect to the use of model elements, the lack of widely used standard contract language, and a host of legal issues. This program will focus on the opportunities and ways to manage contract and legal risk, real or imagined, that will help keep all parties out of court!
When assessing the risks of employing BIM and developing appropriate contract language for its use, a number of issues unique to modeling should be addressed, including:
- What are the purposes from which the model will be used?
- What is the schedule for deliverables from the model?
- How and to what extent will data from one model be transferred or incorporated into other models?
- How is the modeling process managed?
- What is the level of reliance that can be placed on modeled information?
- Will the model be used after construction is completed?
This training CD will address how answering the above questions early can pay off when using BIM models, and much more!
Who Will Benefit?
This training CD is a must if you're an owner, construction manager, contractor, subcontractor, architect, engineer, consultant or legal professional. Purchase to learn how to protect your organization contractually from the risks and legal challenges that come with BIM modeling. BIM modeling is undoubtedly a powerful tool. But with its benefits comes some new challenges.
