A2K Sponsors Consult Australia Seminar: BIM – The Legal Landscape [Sydney]

Sydney seminar | 12 February, 2015.

The potential of building information modelling (BIM) is now being realised in the Australian construction, infrastructure and mining industries.

BIM is now regularly deployed on projects throughout Australia, and it may only be a matter of time before Australia follows the UK and the US and its use is mandated on government projects.

While there are compelling advantages to the use of BIM, it also comes with significant legal and regulatory risks. The use of BIM can alter the legal landscape at all levels of project participation.

A2K Technologies is proud to sponsor this timely seminar, where Nick Crennan and Lindsay Prehn of CBP will provide insights into how participation in a BIM can affect your rights.
