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
