Course Title: BIM Contracts & Risk Allocation/BIM Process & Technology Implementation for Mechanical Contractors

Sponsoring Organization: Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA)

Date: Oct. 17-18

Location: Baltimore, Md.

Course Description: On Oct. 17, BIM Contracts & Risk Allocation for Mechanical Contractors is covered. Among other things, this course will assist contractors in learning how to manage the emerging risks associated with the electronic representation and transmission of project data. Legal concepts and concerns addressed in the course include whether the mechanical contractor’s risk is greater just because BIM risks are different; reaching an understanding with all parties about the ability and right to rely upon the model; applying strict rules to police the model so that access rights are reasonably restricted or logically granted; and contractual reporting requirements for known or observed errors or omissions in contract documents. On Oct. 18, BIM Process & Technology Implementation for Mechanical Contractors will be held. The course provides a foundation for participants to establish and execute the BIM process, facilitate its adoption, and achieve integration on a single project and at a company level to execute multiple BIM projects simultaneously. It provides a practical, how-to explanation of the necessary steps to implement BIM processes and technologies, both on projects and within mechanical contracting firms. Registration is open to MCAA members and MEP contractors. Attendees may sign up for one or both courses.
