Legal: The Ninth Chapter of DBEI Insight

Even with the industries increasing digital maturity level and awareness regarding BIM procurement and delivery, there remains the potential for arising legal issues, including, intellectual property rights, the responsibility of delivery and other litigation risks.

Understanding the correct procurement process for your project, outlining the information requirements, who is responsible for delivery of what, when and how is critical for reducing these potential risks. Defining and using the correct terminology, processes and standards will set you on your way to avoiding unmet expectations and ultimately, costly legal disputes.

Some of the legal aspects to consider when adopting BIM are:

  • Intellectual property rights and ownership
  • Roles and responsibilities – who is delivering what and when
  • Contractual framework for incorporating BIM
  • Liabilities

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.
