The Legal Aspects of BIM

Building Information Management

Many remain confused about the meaning and value of BIM (building information modeling). BIM is NOT 3D modeling (Revit, Archicad, Bentley, etc.), The key to BIM is the construction delivery method and associated strategic direction of all parties.

An Integrated Legal Framework for IPD BIM and Lean

Collaborative Construction

I've been kicking around the idea of a new legal framework within which to deploy IPD, BIM and Lean processes and the idea seems to be gaining a bit of traction. I will follow this post, over the next few weeks, with copies of the articles I've written over the past year for the BUILT - BIM to FM Series in AUGIWorld Magazine where I have detailed a few of the thoughts underlying this concept. trillion global construction industry needs a legal makeover.

Projecting the future:BIM Focus on Images? Legalities?

Carol Hagen

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the hottest construction tool and has been embraced by General Contractors, Mechanical Contractors Architects, etc. ConsensusDocs has addressed BIM extensively in their contract documents and large scale complex projects certainly are reaping the rewards of BIM everyday. Can you picture how a 3D projector or TV would enhance your BIM and CAD models? The future issues also center around legality.

BIM IP

Building Information Management

When discussing BIM with those yet to take it up the topic of Intellectual Property invariably comes up. It is so important to them it comes across as a major reason they are not using BIM (although I suspect it is more of an excuse). For some reason BIM authors (architects, engineers, etc) think that because they create the initial BIM information they have the right to full control and to charge for the BIM model throughout the life of the building.

Public Entities Adopting BIM

Collaborative Construction

I've been advised that Ohio can now be added to the list of states with a robust BIM initiative. The Buckeye State joins, Wisconsin and Texas as an early adopter of BIM technologies in the public arena. Of course, California, the GSA, the USACE and Indiana University, among other entities have embraced BIM in certain circumstances, but those three states, Wisconsin, Texas and Ohio are, to date, the only states to adopt formal BIM policies.
