The Law applied to BIM

The Law applied to BIM could be said to combine a part of traditional construction law with the law based on new technologies. There are many questions that arise when we talk about BIM and its legal repercussions on projects.

What type of contract should be used and basic or ad-hoc clauses should be added?
What is the applicable legislation to a BIM project: public or private?
Who owns the Copyright of the Model?
What software, file formats and builds are the ones that will be used?
What protocol, standard or level of detail or development applies to the model?
What responsibilities exist regarding data dumps and data access roles and phases?
What type of insurance and vicissitudes should I add as a guarantee to the contract?
Who will audit the model, and how?
Who will manage the project's maintenance, and how?
What is the Model's level of electronic data integrity?
How to make a legal risk analysis of the model and suppliers?
In case of conflict or controversy, how should one act?
How to claim compensation in case of contractual breach?

In BIMLegal.net we accompany you and counsel you to make the best decisions.

Such technologies are compatible with BIM; such as 3D printing, virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D point cloud scanner, new software or hardware, blockchain among others.
