Seminar: The Impact of Building Information Modelling (BIM) on Dispute Resolution
03 Mar 2015 /4:30 PM - 7:15 PM /KLRCA Bangunan Sulaiman, Kuala Lumpur

A joint talk between Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration and King’s College London Alumni Malaysia (KCLAM)

The rapid increase in the adoption of “Building Information Modelling (BIM)” raises new legal questions that demand urgent attention. In addition to protection of cyber-security and intellectual property , BIM also challenges fundamentally the traditional consultant/contractor roles in relation to design contributions and critical path activities. “4D” modelling through BIM enables the mapping of all parties’ input at every stage of a project. If used properly, BIM could radically reduce the scope for delay and disruption disputes , but for the unwary  it could mean exposure to much greater liability. In this lecture, Professor David Mosey  will explain his recent work for the UK Government in trialling BIM on live projects and his research as to the impact of BIM on the resolution of  time-related disputes.”
