When BIM & VDC Go Wrong:

Legal Challenges to Digital Design & Construction

By Kevin Kianka, P.E.
Disputes involving Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) issues are becoming increasingly common in the Architectural, Engineering & Construction (AEC) community.  Whether dues to errors in the creation, management, coordination, or processes these BIM and VDC issues can cause delays to project schedules and impact costs for rework, where they were intended to minimize them.   
While BIM and VDC technologies are related, there are some general differences. BIM creates a digital representation of a physical buildings, while VDC utilizes 3D BIM models and other information to digitally plan out facets of construction projects from estimating costs, sequencing and scheduling, and risk management analysis.
