Fridays with Vico Presents BIM 301: New BIM Contracts Join us on Friday, April 17th, 12 Noon Eastern

The Fridays with Vico webinars are a free, educational series geared at general contractors and owners. Our topics range from BIM trends, to case studies and best practices, to new concepts for the industry.

Fridays with Vico Presents BIM 301: New BIM Contracts
Join us on Friday, April 17th, 12 Noon Eastern

Reserve your Webinar seat now at:
In the BIM 101 Workshop, we examined the evolution of building information modeling from 2D drawing sets to 3D models to 4D schedules to 5D estimates and even layouting solutions. In the BIM 201 Workshop, we examined 3D/4D Coordination efforts in-depth, with the understanding that "clashes" happen in both space and time. And now for the BIM 301 Workshop, we'll turn our attention to BIM Contracts.
Who: BIM 301 Webinar: New BIM Contracts
What: A free online webinar
When: Friday, April 7, 2009 from 12Noon EST to 2:00PM
How: Register today at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/910392193
As we discussed in the BIM 201 webinar, contracts play a central role in defining deliverables, interactions with project stakeholders, and risk obligations for commerical building projects. To cover this complex issue, Fridays with Vico is pleased to have Rick Lowe, Partner from Duane Morris LLP and chair of the AGC BIMForum Legal Subforum, deliver the course content.
This webinar is for you if:
1.) Your firm has received an RFP in which the Owner asks for BIM deliverables;
2.) Your firm has received a request to work under an alternative delivery method such as IPD or Design Build;
3.) Your firm is interested in coordinating multiple models from several entities, such as the Architect, the Structural Engineer, and various Subcontractors;
4.) You want to better understand how to be in compliance with the ConsensusDOCS 301-BIM Addendum, or the AIA 202 materials, and use their structure to your best advantage;
5.) You are unsure if you are meeting the Standard of Care as defined in contract language;
6.) You are unsure about the modeling structure to employ and the contributions to accept;
7.) You are interested in perpetuating the life of the model to Facilities Management after the keys are turned over.
Legal contracts in the construction industry are developed to serve two purposes: to recommend best delivery practices and to properly allocate risk among the project stakeholders. With the advent of BIM technologies, methodologies, and processes, it has become increasingly important to identify who or what holds key project details: the Architect or the GC, the model or the drawings. And with that ownership, comes great reward or risk. In the webinar, we'll discuss the various types of models as identified by the ConsensusDOCS and the AIA, the best practices for handling the model and its changes, as well as the legal ramifications (and rewards) of entering into these project relationships.
No BIM education series is complete without an understanding and appreciation for the new laws in the industry. Register today for this in-depth webinar as part of the Fridays with Vico series.
