Technology in Construction Contracts: Current Best Practices and Future Challenges
2 PM EST
Technology changes the way participants in the design and construction industry work together by requiring more collaborative information and data sharing and manipulation of shared models. Too often the use of technology is not adequately addressed in AEC contracts and contract wording is at odds with the way participants use technology and share data. This webinar brings together a practitioner and an attorney to discuss best practices for incorporating technology into contracts.
What do lawyers need to understand about the current technology to best serve their clients, what are the common mistakes, and what are the potential consequences? The wave of disruptive technologies has only begun. AI built into new technologies, including BIM programs, communications software, and the IOT will effectively remove the ability to engage in the typical kind of finger-pointing analysis underlying most construction claims. Find out how new technologies will drive collaborative delivery methods and redefine working relationships as well as how contracts will need to change to embrace those changes.
