Who is the Engineer Here? A Study of Design Delegation, Design Assist, and the Role of BIM
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a powerful design and construction tool that has the potential to transform our industry. At the same time, BIM can significantly blur the line between design and construction, a condition that occurs all too frequently. This presentation looks at some of the common pitfalls in Design-Bid-Build contracts that create design ambiguity, and strategies contractors can employ to avoid inadvertent design liability that generates BIM cost overruns.
