Are you unsure about:
- the current US legal environment with respect to BIM and VDC?
- the evolving standards of care for design and construction professionals using BIM and VDC?
- what practical methods and techniques can be used for analyzing construction claims and disputes involving BIM technologies and VDC processes?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) processes are aggressively and fundamentally changing the design, construction and operation of buildings. Supporters of BIM have highlighted the potential these technologies have to reduce the need for claims, disputes and litigation, but evidence from several early sources shows they are not universally successful in this.
This timely and unique book provides crucial new methods for analyzing construction disputes in this emerging AEC technological landscape. It explains how BIM & VDC has significantly altered the production and delivery of construction drawings, quantity surveys, and schedules, and how these changes might impact construction disputes.
The findings and advice in this book are indispensable to any stakeholder in a construction project using BIM. It will help Contractors, Cost Managers, Architects, Building Designers, Quantity Surveyors, and Project Managers to navigate and understand their responsibilities and exposure to risk when working with this new technology.
