Launch of KCL BIM Research Report Sponsored by ACA and SCL
BIM raises basic legal and contractual questions as to who provides what project information , when it is best provided and how it should be used and relied upon. Case studies show direct links between the success of BIM and the use of collaborative procurement models and appropriate contract terms. Yet concerns as to the reliability of BIM and its possible impact on team members’ liability have fuelled a more defensive contractual approach, which can restrict the ability of BIM users to work confidently and efficiently. The Centre of Construction Law and Dispute Resolution at King’s College London (“KCL”) has led a Research Group of specialists analysing a range of projects, and will report on how procurement models and construction contracts can influence and be influenced by BIM at level 2 and level 3.
Conference delegates will be provided with copies of the KCL Centre of Construction Law research report “Enabling BIM through Collaborative Procurement and Contracts”.
