Managing the Legal and Practice Issues of Building Information Modeling (BIM) [T8]Building Information Modeling (BIM), an emerging and evolving design technology for engineers across the spectrum of design and construction projects, can improve a design firm's productivity, quality, and project team relationships when used properly. Combined with Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approaches, BIM can add value to the design and construction process through cost modeling and analysis, virtual building coordination, logistics and continuity, digital record documentation, and operations and maintenance. We'll explore the investments required in terms of tools, technology, and training as well as quality management standards, processes, and protocols. Learn about the legal implications of using BIM, including its impact on the standard of care, controlling the use of your intellectual property, professional association tools, and contract forms to manage BIM and protect your firm from professional liability risk.
