Brandon's presentation will briefly explore how the use of BIM and VDC have impacted traditional construction claims such as those involving disputed scope, schedule, coordination, and workmanship issues. What issues remain the same, what issues are different, and what issues are still unknown? To address these questions, my presentation will examine: (1) what benefits BIM and VDC are intended to provide; (2) the evolving standards of care for BIM and VDC; (3) the use of form contracts to govern the use of BIM and VDC; (4) who owns and controls BIM and VDC; (5) under what circumstances a BIM or collection of BIMs might be considered a Contract Document; and (6) what the very limited case law tells us about legal liabilities associated with the use of BIM and VDC.
