5.30 - 6pm: Networking and registration
6-7pm: Presentation

Spatial solutions, like BIM, are slowly being implemented globally, by early adopters in the construction sector, with an aim to make sector-wide improvements on time and cost management on major Engineering and Construction (E&C) projects. This presentation relates to spatial technologies, as an enabler, for knowledge management and communication, specifically pertaining to the other industry actors who work alongside major contracting firms, like facilitators, mediators, arbitrators, legal firms and professional associations. The importance of streamlined, symbiotic, multi-stakeholder approaches to monitoring major projects is one of the keys to managing time and cost.

When specifically considering 3D-BIM, 4D-BIM and computer gaming, these technologies provide a significant increase in precision, where reason and rationale hold sway over assumption and opinion, providing the mechanism for the demonstration of truth.

This makes this suite of technologies extremely valuable to the legal professional. As the complexity of projects has increased, a divide has been established between the designer/engineer who is a technical specialist and the supporting professions, making real understanding of a problem increasingly more difficult.
