Whilst cloud-based platforms like BIM360 powerfully connect project teams and data, this very ability to connect in real time – with decisions and actions made based on the connected information – brings a host of potential unintended and avoidable misunderstandings, increased liability and risks. E.g. who is responsible for errors/corruption in data accessed by external parties? Is the party hosting the platform responsible for misuse of the platform and data in it? What obligations do parties accessing the BIM360 or other platform have to the hosting party? This is an expensive ticking time-bomb of liability and disputes waiting to happen. However, there are presently no resources or practical advices on how to mitigate/avoid such issues or how to explain them to your lawyers so they can help you avoid the risks. In this class, you will be given practical, useful advice and tips on how to reduce risk and clarify parties’ rights and obligations via clear process, guidance and terms.
