BIM Model as a Right of Reliance in Project Delivery Ecosystem
This panel will examine the opportunities and barriers for making models reliable tools and deliverables on construction projects. The current challenge is that – even though BIM is well established in our industry – we still don’t trust models or treat models as reliable means of conveying design and construction information. Documents represented as 2D PDFs are the predominant means of representing and transferring design and construction information. Models are provided on many projects for information only. Even though we are all very familiar and comfortable with drawings they may not be the ideal tool for representing design and construction information. Drawings can hide or ignore complexities and contain undetected inconsistencies in the design. Furthermore, drawings require a high degree of interpretation in order to apply the information contained in them to the project.
