ACI Event in Cincinnati for Engineers April 18, 2014

The Legal Framework for BIM
What Engineers Need to Know and Why

Attention engineers! Owners and General Contractors are demanding building information models (BIM) and other virtual planning, design and construction services from designers, including engineers in multiple disciplines. Engineers asked to deliver a BIM confront a number of practical and legal challenges. Is your firm fully prepared to respond to an RFP that calls for a BIM deliverable? If you are unsure join us at ACI's training facility, 3 Kovach Drive, Cincinnati, Ohio 45215, on April 18, 2014 to explore that question and those listed below. Two hours of Continuing Education Units will be earned by attendees.

  • What kind contract should a designer tasked with delivering BIM sign?
  • Can you deliver BIM under a traditional design-bid-build contract?
  • Should you sign a BIM addendum?
  • What should a BIM addendum address?
  • Is it easier to deliver BIM in an integrated project delivery (IPD) environment?
  • What are the risks of delivering a BIM and how should those be handled?
  • Is BIM emerging as the new standard of care in the built industry?
  • How are disputes handled on a BIM project and in an IPD environment?
  • How is compensation handled relative to BIM and in an IPD environment?
  • What are the legal implications and or risks associated with delivering BIM?
Learn the answers to these questions and many more. Join James L. Salmon of Collaborative Construction for a 2 hour ACI presentation on April 18, 2014. The event will take place at ACI's training facility which is located at 3 Kovach Drive, Cincinnati Ohio 45215.  James is an attorney by training with over 20 years of experience litigating failed construction projects. His company helps built industry professionals adopt, adapt to and deploy effective legal frameworks that support and enable BIM and integrated project delivery (IPD).
