Presentation on Forensic BIM for the NAHB

In January I will be presenting at the National Association of Home Builders International Builder's Show in Las Vegas.  The presentation, titled Forensic BIM, explores the scope and nature of the legal duties owed by built industry professionals and manufacturers in a BIM environment.

BIM as the new standard of care for designers is not a new concept. In fact I was quoted on the topic in an article published by For Construction Pros in 2011 titled, BIM Emerging as the New Standard of Care.  As I explained in the article at the time I had remained silent on the topic for sometime out of a sense of loyalty / duty to my design clients.

Now however, the cat is out of the bag and creative lawyers will soon seek to hold other built industry professionals, like planners, general contractors, trade contractors and certain specialists to a heightened duty as the use of BIM expands.  In addition, the new standard of care will likely extend to manufacturers as well.

In light of the foregoing I argue a good offense is the best defense and I prepare my clients to utilize BIM effectively and to reduce the risks to themselves and their clients.
